Michter's US*1 Small Batch Unblended American Whiskey

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, the US*1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilises whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavour profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release Michter’s US*1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly 3 year absence from the market, deeming it ‘just right’ and ‘the best it’s ever been’. Crucially, the US*1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains grain neutral spirits, hence its ‘unblended’ distinction.
