Just a couple of days after a tragic Patriot’s Day, let us harken back to the time of George Washington and his troops fighting off the Brits. At this proud time in American history, we must ask ourselves: what powered these noble patriots?
The answer: Michter’s Sour Mash Whiskey, of course. This Gatorade of the American Revolution has been saucing up winners since the 1700s. Originally a rye brand in Pennsylvania, Michter’s went through hard times following Prohibition, going bankrupt and selling off most of the equipment. Since then, however, Michter’s partnered with Dick Newman and reopened the brand in Kentucky.
