Detailed Description

This extraordinary bourbon had a long, dramatic journey from its inception to your glass. In fact, the journey behind A.H. Hirsch Reserve speaks volumes about why it's not just the finest American bourbon ever made, but indeed a rare national artifact.

The sublime, amber-colored whiskey in this bottle was distilled in 1974 in the small copper pot-stills of Michter's Distillery. Nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania, the distillery originated in the mid-1700's when Kentucky was just a twinkle in Daniel Boone's eye. It is quite justifiably listed as a National Historic Landmark.

The combination of an arduous distilling process, and unusual recipe, including rye and 16 years of peaceful slumber in the wood are partly why Hirsch Reserve is such a magnificent spirit. The rest must be put down to the sheer force of history and perhaps, a touch of magic.

In 1989, the last remaining barrels were brought to Kentucky for final aging and bottling -- this whiskey was awarded America's first five-star rating. Simply stated, there is no other bourbon on any shelf that compares with its bouquet, flavor, depth and overall complexity.

A.H. Hirsh Reserve whiskey is an evocation of a specific time and place. We present it here for your discerning taste and lasting enjoyment.
