    Michter's Distillery gets new owners.

    The historic Michter's Distillery in Schaefferstown, PA has new owners as of this week. My friend Dwight Hostetter was forced to sell the property. Here is a newspaper article on the transaction:

    Hopefully the new owners stick to their story and give some of the buildings a nice restoration!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Maybe someone can save me the trouble of sifting through 100 threads in a search. Seeing that the distillery was closed down in 1989, where is the Michter's I see on the shelf now made at?

    In simplest terms: it is bulk whiskey.

    Re: Michter's Distillery gets new owners.

    More specifically---
    It is supposedly Heaven Hill whiskey that is aged and bottled by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers and is marketed by Chatham Imports.

    I tried some Michters 10 y/o at the sampler. Pretty tasty stuff, but very expensive to buy.

    Re: Michter's Distillery gets new owners.

    That's a different company than what was in PA. They just bought the name back in the late 90's. While I wish them well, I wish they would stop acting like they were the same company that was in PA.
