Michter’s Single Barrel Rye Whiskey
Renowned for rye – America’s oldest whiskey variety – since the earliest days of our history, we take the production of Michter’s US 1 Rye extremely seriously. Our Michter’s US 1 Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. Ideal neat or in cocktails, every bottle of Michter’s US 1 Rye comes from a single barrel – a unique attribute reflecting our extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the absolute highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range.
