Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximise the extraction of flavour from the grain. Every bottle comes from a single barrel which is a unique attribute reflecting the extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the absolute highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range.
The US*1 expressions, so named to honour Michter’s heritage harkening back to America’s first whiskey company. Using fire-charred, new American oak barrels, it’s distilled to Master Distiller Dan McKee’s exacting specifications, no US*1 whiskey is ever released until Dan and the Michter’s tasting panel deems it ready.
