Bomberger's Distillery, more recently Michter's Distillery, is a non-operating distillery facility that was, at the end of the twentieth century, believed to be the oldest remaining such building in the United States. The distillery closed in 1989 and may have since been demolished.
Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery is located at 801 W. Main St. in Louisville, Ky. Most of Michter's whiskey is made at its distillery in the Shively neighborhood of Louisville, which is not open to the public.
For background and before starting the review, Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Bourbon, just like the 10 year single rye, is sourced from an undisclosed Kentucky Distiller.
Originally known as Shenk's and later as Bomberger's, the whiskey company which ultimately became known as Michter's was founded by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer, in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania in 1753.
Rye's mash bill must, by law, consist of at least 51% rye. Most rye whiskeys use malted barley or corn as the other grains. As with bourbon, ground grain is mixed with water and a bit of mash from a previous distillation, in what's known as a sour-mash process.
Since 2004, whiskeys, including bourbon, rye, and a version of the Michter's Original Sour Mash brand, made in Kentucky, have been sold under the Michter's label, now owned by Chatham Imports, Inc.
