Product Description

American greatness is making a comeback. During the 1970s and 1980s, whiskey lovers made Michters Original US*1 Sour Mash Whiskey the distillerys most popular type. In 1989 Michters Original US*1 Sour Mash disappeared from the marketplace until now. December 2012 marked the first release of Michters Original US*1 Sour Mash Whiskey in 23 years. It is made according to the traditional sour mash whiskey making process whereby some previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented. Typically in most sour mash whiskeys, this setback from the prior fermentation accounts for about 10 to 20 percent of the new mash to be fermented. More than just a sour mash process whiskey, Michters Original US*1 Sour Mash is made from a special selection of grains, barrel aged, and later on filtered according to the exacting Michters standards. Production: Small Batch. Limited quantities. Bottling Strength: 86 Proof (43% Alcohol by Volume). Cooperage: Fire-charred, new American white oak barrels.

Varietal: Whiskey

Region: United States

Region Description:

Wineries exist in all fifty states, but the most predominant (and best) wine comes from Northern California, Oregon, and Washington State, with New York gaining a foothold in the industry. American wines make up about 75% of all wine sales in the US. The appellation system uses the term AVA (American Viticultural Area) to determine where wines were produced, but grape varieties can be planted anywhere in the country. American wineries generally use varietal labeling, and government regulations require that the variety on the label must make up at least 75% of the blend (in Oregon it’s 90%). The words reserve, special selection, private reserve, classic, and so on have no legal definition in the US. Some wineries use these terms to indicate their better wines; others use the words as a marketing tool to move lower quality wines off the shelf.
