The Michter’s brand name is a historic one. Produced during the middle of the 20th century at the historic Bomberger’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, (where whiskey under many different names had been made since before the Revolutionary War) Michter’s was a popular brand of sour mash whiskey invented by Charles Everett Beam. Later discontinued due to bankruptcy in the late 1980s, the Michter’s name took on a new mystique as a lost piece of American whiskey history. However, the Michter’s name was revived by two entrepreneurs who acquired the rights to the brand’s trademarks. Instead of Pennsylvania, however, the new Michter’s set up shop in Kentucky, citing a desire to be near “the best whiskey talent and resources available.” The first release of the revived Michters took place in 2004.
