Renowned for rye – America’s oldest whiskey variety – since the earliest days of their history, they take the production of Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye extremely seriously.  Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximise flavour extraction from the grain.

Ideal neat or in cocktails, every bottle comes from a single barrel – a unique attribute reflecting our extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range.

At Michter’s, the Rye mash bill has a high proportion of corn, resulting in a great interplay of corn sweetness with spice and richness from the rye grain,

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Butterscotch and Oak, with poached apple and peppermint tea

Palate: leading with the Maple and cherry of the corn in the mash bill, with the fruit and spice from rye picking up on the midpalate

Finish: Baking spices and poached apples with peppermint and herbaceous finish
