The US*1 expressions, so named to honor Michter's heritage harkening back to America's first whiskey company, consist of some of the finest single barrel and truly small batch whiskeys available. Distilled to Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann's exacting specifications, no US*1 whiskey is ever released until Willie and the Michter's tasting panel deems it ready.
The 10-Year Rye, 10-Year Bourbon and 20-Year Bourbon expressions reflect the exceptional results of uncompromising craftsmanship and Kentucky's unrivaled climate for aging outstanding whiskey. Often much older than the age statement on the label, only a select few barrels age with the elegance required for inclusion in these highly limited release.

Michter's was recently voted #1 top trending brand for the American Whiskey category in the 2019 Brands Report published by Drinks International. This is by far the best bourbon I have tasted and I don't seem to be the only one thinking this. Neat, on ice or in a whisky sour or old fashioned, this big bourbon won't let you down.
