The rich history surrounding Michter's harkens back to America's first distilling company. Michter's was established in the 1700's by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer who settled his family in Pennsylvania's Blue Mountain Valley. With his farm producing an abundance of rye, in 1753 Shenk decided to build a small distillery to convert his excess rye to whiskey. In time, this little distillery with its hand-hammered stills would come to produce what would someday be known as the famous Michter's whiskey.

This particular rye whiskey was so valued that when the Revolutionary War broke out, General George Washington purchased it to fortify his men as they hunkered down in their camp through the long, brutal winter at Valley Forge. Michter's, as the saying goes, was "the whiskey that warmed the American Revolution," and it continues to warm today's resurgent American whiskey revolution.

A blended whiskey is a whiskey that has been mixed with 'neutral spirits,' that is, unaged alcohol. The blend must contain at least 20 per cent whiskey or at least a 20 per cent blend of whiskeys. In contrast, the entire families of Michter's whiskeys, including Michter's Unblended American Whiskey, are 100 per cent whiskey and never stretched with neutral grain spirits.
