Michter's US 1 Single Barrel Straight Rye is a one of the most historically significant – and oldest – brands of whiskey in the US. Today it is part of a range of limited production whiskies produced under the Michter’s label for New York drinks’ company, Chatham Imports.

They claim Michter’s US 1 Single Barrel Rye is “America’s first whiskey”. It all started way back in 1753 when a Swiss Mennonite farmer called John Shenk built a small distillery on his farm in Pennsylvania to convert excess rye into whisky. It became so popular that - legend has it - it was even bought by George Washington during the American War of Independence to fortify his men.

Today’s Michter’s is not made in the same distillery but claims the brand’s entire heritage.

Expect spiciness and a bit of a bite from this American cult classic. It is produced in limited quantities and while it is new this side of the Atlantic, Michter’s US 1 Single Barrel Rye does have a loyal following in the States.
