Michter's was founded and established in 1753 near Shaefferstown, PA not Louisville. It was believed to be the oldest distillery in the US. It wasn't bourbon, it was a sour mash whiskey originally. The current distillers bought name and nothing else. The distillery in PA was named a National Historic Landmark in 1980 and exists as a wood shop currently. Sorry to be a lead balloon but this bourbon has nothing to do with the 1753 distillery other than someone's marketing scheme.
