Michters Decanters

Unread postby Dangermonkey » Fri May 08, 2009 12:40 pm

Been doing some research on Michters for a while now (almost ready to do a magazine story with lots of pictures of the distillery as it stands today) and during my research came across ( and bought) a number of Michters Decanters from a bottle club member.
This whiskey was only available by membership/subscription to their club and occasionally sold at their on premise gift shop.
This was the whiskey that came from their one barrel a day potstill and not the 12,000 gallon per 24 hour column still (which is where all the other - (such as Hirsch series) came from making these much rarer than any other whiskey from Michters- so rare I have never seen any other bottles on offer anywhere. Does anyone have any idea what these might be worth on the market?

I wouldn't call myself a Michter's guru, but I have amassed a large collection of their decanters, photos, and paperwork. I also know the current owner of the distillery and also have been doing some cleanup work there. What decanters do you have? I would be willing to help you out with your article and also determining the rarity of your collection. Please let me know how I can help!!!
If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

If it's empty, about $35. If it's full, about $45.
