Michter's

Long before Kentucky Bourbon became America's native spirit, it was Pennsylvania and Maryland Rye. I was born and raised in the "Old Line State" but never heard one mention of Maryland's rich whiskey history. Little did I know that Baltimore's discerning drinkers once gave life to distilleries like Majestic, the makers of Pikesville Rye, and Frank L. Wight Distilling Co., the makers of Sherwood Pure Rye. I never knew that there were thousands and thousands of commercial distilleries between the two states. And here is why...

By the 1960's, every single commercial distillery in Maryland and Pennsylvania had closed. The original Wight Distillery is now a Procter & Gamble plant. The once famous Mount Vernon Distillery is now a vacant lot beneath a bridge near M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
