Michter’s Legacy Whiskey Dinner at The Cloister Wine Cellar

The Cloister Wine Cellar

Please join us for a one-of-a-kind spirited dinner at the Cloister Wine Cellar hosted by Michter’s American Whiskey.  To close out the season of incredible spirit dinners this past year, the team from Michter’s will be guiding you on a 5-course luxury dining experience with some of their rarest, and most exclusive offerings.  The culinary and beverage team at Sea Island worked hand-in-hand with the Masters of the brand, including Mrs. Andrea Wilson, Master of Maturation and Chief Operating Officer of Michter’s Whiskey, to create a unique and intimate Whiskey experience that you wont want to miss.  Each course will be paired with an exclusive offering from the Michter’s collection along with curated cocktails throughout the dinner.

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.  According to Pennsylvania historical lore, commemorated by the Lebanon Valley Coin Club in 1978, this particular rye whiskey was so valued that when the Revolutionary War broke out, General George Washington visited the distillery and purchased whiskey to fortify his men as they hunkered down in their camp through the long, brutal winter at Valley Forge. Over 200 years later the Michter’s Pennsylvania management would say Michter’s was “the whiskey that warmed the American Revolution.”  

In the 1990s, Joseph J. Magliocco and his consultant and mentor Richard “Dick” Newman teamed up to resurrect Michter’s.  Magliocco and Newman began with a simple strategy – to honor the Michter’s legacy by producing the best whiskey possible, cost be damned!  Today, Michter’s has three locations in Kentucky – a 78,000 square foot distillery in the Shively section of Louisville, the architecturally significant Fort Nelson Building on Louisville’s Museum Row and 205 acres of farm land in Springfield.
