About Michter's: Michter’s is proud to honor a historical legacy tracing back to the founding of America’s first whiskey company in 1753. Originally known as Shenk’s and later as Bomberger’s, the whiskey company which ultimately became known as Michter’s was founded by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer, in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania in 1753.
Today, Michter’s has three locations in Kentucky – a 78,000 square foot Distillery situated on 7.5 acres in the Shively section of Louisville, the architecturally significant landmark Fort Nelson Building located on Museum Row in downtown Louisville, and 145 acres of farm land in Springfield.
