The first release in May 2015 of Michter’s US ★ 1 Barrel Strength Rye was another milestone in that quest.For maturation, rye distillate is introduced into a barrel with a force of 103, rather than a greater force that meets industry standards. It costs Michter more money in terms of kegs and storage to go into a keg with a lower strength rather than a higher tenacity, but we believe that when properly matured, a richer, smoother, and richer whiskey is obtained.Single Barrel Product, Each Michter American Rye Barrel ★ 1 Barrel Strength is bottled with a specific alcohol level at the time of bottling.
