A long, long time ago, in a country far, far away (at least for us, as we’re based in The Netherlands), two Mennonite brothers called John and Michael Shenk started a rye farm in Pennsylvania, that later grew out to be the Shenk’s distillery. It was called many names after that, including Michter’s and Bomberger’s. Bomberger’s was made at the site from the mid 1800s until Prohibition, but it was in the 1970s that liquor giant Chatham Imports relaunched the brand Michter’s in Kentucky, sourcing their juice from different distilleries at first (we all know that Michter’s is making their own whiskey to great reviews, these days). In the 2010s, however, a Pennsylvanian couple relaunched the Bomberger’s Distillery at the same time as Chatham was making Bomberger’s bourbon under the same name in Kentucky. Gloves on! History tells us who won the legal battle that followed. This bourbon is the first result of that legal battle. This Bomberger’s Declaration 100 Proof is a rare find and we applaud the person that gets this first ever Bomberg’s that was made since Prohibition.
