MICHTER'S

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 produciing whiskey from rye grain, a favourite local crop in the Pennsylvania Blue Mountain Valley where the distillery was located. According to local historical lore, this particular rye whiskey was so valued that when the Revolutionary War broke out, General George Washington visited the distillery and purchased whiskey to fortify his men as they hunkered down in their camp through the long, brutal winter at Valley Forge.
Over 200 years later, management would say Michter's was “the whiskey that warmed the American Revolution”

Master Distiller

Dan McKee

Born and bred in Indiana, Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee moved to Kentucky to pursue his dream of making whiskey. He began his career in the bourbon industry as a Distillery Operator at Jim Beam Distillery before moving into more hands-on roles making some of the industry’s leading bourbons and ryes. Dan was instrumental in his work to bring Michter’s Fort Nelson distillery online with its legendary pot stills and cypress wood fermenters from the original Michter’s Pennsylvania operation. With his expertise in grain, Dan has played a key role in working with our local farmers to coordinate the planting schedules on Michter’s 145-acre parcel in Springfield, Kentucky.
