Michter’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania was the foster home of A.H. Hirsch Reserve bourbon. Dating back to the mid-eighteenth century, Michter’s was distilling whiskey. As early as 1753 there was a small distillery on this Pennsylvania farmstead. That’s long before Kentucky was even settled! Ranking with the world’s best whiskies, the A.H. Hirsch 16 year old, is without question, of the absolute highest quality available today. Distilled in the spring of 1974 (and no longer produced), Hirsch Reserve whiskies are the only example of their type currently available. These rare Bourbon whiskies were distilled in the time-honored Kentucky pot-still tradition, a slower, more work intensive, more expensive relic of a bygone era. The whiskies show the benefits traditional cask aging gives to Bourbon. Hirsch Reserve stands in the class of top-flight single malt Scotch Whisky and Grand Champagne Cognac, offering a silky smooth texture and perfectly balanced flavors of sweet oak, maple and spice. The aftertaste is round, rich, very long and mellow.
