Michter’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn. Truly “small batch”, each expression is batched in a holding tank, sized to fit a maximum of 20 full barrels, leaving no margin for “blending out” perfection therefore necessitating perfection from every barrel.
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.
