2019 Bomberger's Declaration Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Kentucky, UNITED STATES
$199.00 Bottle
  • ABV 54%

This is a new product from Michter's honoring their past in Pennsylvania while paying homage to one of Bourbon's lost brands. The Bomberger's legacy can be traced back to 1753, when two Swiss Mennonite farmers began distilling rye on their farm near Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The distillery was passed down through relatives until 1860 when it was purchased (and subsequently renamed) by Pennsylvania Dutchman, Adam Bomberger. He owned and operated the distillery until Prohibition forced its closing in 1919. Lou Forman who followed, abandoned the original Pennsylvania operation in the 1950s after filing for bankruptcy. In the 1990s, two entrepreneurs filed for the Michter’s trademark and relocated the brand in Louisville, Kentucky.

Until Prohibition, Bomberger's was the oldest operating distillery in the United States, and in many ways represented the transformation of whiskey distilling from an agricultural level to an industrial one. While the age and mash bill of the Bomberger release is unknown, speculation puts it above 10 years old with a small portion matured in Chinquapin oak. It's been described as "...one of the more intriguing releases from Michter's thus far." Limited run of 3040 bottles. We have less than twelve to sell. 54% Alc./Vol.
