Product Description

While the Michter's team distills according to tried and true Kentucky practices, it continually experiments as it pursues the goal of making the greatest American whiskeys. Following years of research on different barrel finishes, the Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Rye is here. The Michter's Straight Rye is taken at barrel strength and aged for an additional period in a second custom barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 24 month air dried wood and then toasted by not charred. The result is a unique Rye whiskey. The strength of the majority of barrels selected for this first release ranges in proof from 107 to 111.8 proof.

    One of the few bottles around I would pay this much for and not regret it. So smooth and so much flavor. A real treat.


Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
