Based in Lousiville, Kentucky, Michter’s is a distillery with ties to America’s first distillery. In 1753, it was a Swiss Mennonite farmer named John Shenk who founded Shenk’s distillery — which was eventually renamed into Michter’s distillery in the 20th century. Shenk Homestead bottlings honor the guy who started it all.

Released in 2021, Shenk's Homestead Bourbon Sour Mash follows two previous, super successful editions that instantly sold out. Like its predecessors, some of the Whisky was aged in Chinquapin oak barrels. The wood is air dried naturally, seasoned for over 3 years, and charred at various levels. Nothing is left to coincidence and the result is an elegant and balanced Whisky.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
