The May 2019 inagural release of Michter’s US1 Barrel Strength Rye marked yet another milestone. For maturation, the Rye distillate is entered into the barrel at 112.4 proof. This process yields a rich, smooth, more full-bodied whiskey after proper maturation. The majority of barrels in the release range between 107 and 112 proof. To savor it is a unique experience for anyone who enjoys Rye whiskey.
