Michter’s Shenk’s Homestead Sour Mash 2023 Release

Shenk’s Homestead Distillery Sour Mash Whiskey honors the legacy of historic American whiskey figure John Shenk, who, in 1753, founded a distillery that was to become known as Michter’s in the 20th century. It is made in Kentucky according to the traditional Sour Mash process, whereby a portion of the previously distilled whiskey mash (referred to as “setback”) is added to the next batch. This full-bodied, small-batch whiskey is 91.2 proof.
Shenk’s is a Kentucky Sour Mash Whiskey made with a substantial amount of rye. The unique character of this Small Batch 2023 release is due to the malted rye recipe. For maturation, there were 2 different special barrel profiles: one portion of the whiskey was aged in 18-month naturally air-dried and seasoned wood with Michter’s signature toast and char profile, and another portion was aged in special toasted French oak barrels that were made from 24-month air-dried wood sourced from the Vosges region of France.
