Michter’s has unveiled the 2021 edition of its 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon, its first batch of the two decade old whiskey since 2019. The bourbon will start shipping to the brand’s distributor and importer network this November.
“I really enjoy this release because the barrels that our Master Distiller Dan McKee and our Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson selected for it are so layered and rich,” stated Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco.
Wilson commented, “This whiskey really showcases how thoughtful care and attention throughout the aging life can lead to an absolutely beautiful expression. Sipping it mirrors the experience of savoring a fine, decadent dessert.” “We pay extra special attention to our barrels once they reach 15 years because we want the barrels we offer to achieve the perfect balance of flavor and oak-driven complexity,” said Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee.
Bottled at 57.1% ABV, the 2021 Edition of Michter’s 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is priced at $750 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
In September, Michter’s Distillery began shipping the 2021 bottling of its US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon, maring the first release of the whiskey since August 2018. In February, the Kentucky distillery announced it would release 2021 US*1 Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey for the first time since 2019.
