Michter's annual release schedule has been keeping Whiskey hunters on their toes for years. The Louisville-based distillery prides itself in taking time when offering traditional American Whiskies and limited edition production offerings. Their specialty is putting freshly distilled Spirits into the barrel at a lower proof. As the barrels mature they generally increase in proof and with no water is added later in the process, the final yield is richer, smoother, and more full-bodied.

Michter’s US*1 Barrel Strength Rye March 2021 is the highly anticipated successor to the April 2019 release. With an average proof of 110.3, this is one powerhouse of a Rye, beautiful in its display of the style's nuances, but also smooth and approachable.

Highly-anticipated and hard to come by — definitely worth your attention.

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
It is believed that during the famous Winter encampment at Valley Forge, George Washington himself rode to the nearby distillery and acquired a few barrels of Rye to keep his soldiers warm.
When you see Rye Whiskey newcomers calling their spirit a “classic Rye,” you can bet they are comparing themselves to Michter’s Rye Whiskey, because Michter’s was literally the first.
