Bomberger’s Declaration Distillery Bourbon honours the legacy of the former distillery known as Bomberger’s in the 1800’s and later as Michter’s in the 20th Century. This outstanding Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a true celebration of American Whiskey History.

This 2023 release continues the Bomberger’s tradition of offering bold and beautiful 108 proof (54% ABV) Kentucky Straight Bourbon with a rich and layered complexity due to a portion of the bourbon being aged in Chinquapin (Quercus muehlenbergii) oak. The Chinquapin oak utilised for the aging was naturally air dried and seasoned for three years before being toasted and charred to the exacting specifications of our Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. In addition, some malted rye was used in the production of this bourbon. This is a bold and rich whiskey featuring its signature fruit and spice coupled with rich molasses and a complex, lingering finish that gives you something to savour.

Originally known as Shenk's and later as Bomberger's, this whiskey company ultimately became known as Michter's. It was founded by John Shenk in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, in 1753. In the mid-1800s, Pennsylvania Dutchman Abraham Bomberger bought the distillery and it was then known for many decades as Bomberger's. After changing hands many times over the course of Prohibition, eventually Lou Forman created the Michter's brand name by combining his sons' names, Michael and Peter. Though sadly, the distillery closed in 1989 due to bankruptcy.

However, Michter’s prevails! Joseph Magliocco and Richard Newman joined forces, both men with a passion for whiskey. After filing for the abandoned Michter’s trademark, they planned to resurrect Michter's in the heart of the modern American whiskey industry, Kentucky.

Their current historic Fort Nelson site was first built in 1890 and purchased by Michter’s in 2012, after years of restoration the site opened to the public in February 2019. As well as their Fort Nelson site, the company owns Michter’s Shively Distillery in Louisville, as well as its 145-acre farm in Springfield, Kentucky.
