LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --



This May, Louisville-based Michter's Distillery will begin shipping the 2021

release of its 10 Year Bourbon. In July of 2020, a private barrel selection

bottling of Michter's 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon established the record

for a barrel of bourbon purchased at auction when it was sold in London for

166,000 GBP (US$209,462). "It's wonderful to see the growing recognition that

well-made bourbon, rye, and American whiskey are having around the world,"

observed Joseph J. Magliocco, Michter's President.

Michter's 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is 94.4 proof, and it sells for a

suggested retail price of $150 in the U.S. In the words of Michter's Master

Distiller Dan McKee, "This release is a really full bodied, special bourbon."


It has been stored in Michter's heat-cycled warehouses. "When we heat cycle, it

increases the interaction between the whiskey and the wood allowing us to

extract more character from the barrel resulting in a truly rich and

exceptional whiskey that is not overly oaked," stated Michter's Master of

Maturation Andrea Wilson.


Michter's makes highly acclaimed, limited production whiskeys. Michter's is

renowned for its small batch bourbon, single barrel bourbon, single barrel rye,

and small batch American whiskey.  In January 2021, Michter's was named the #1

Top Trending American Whiskey brand by Drinks International in their Annual

Brands Report for the third year in a row. Beyond its main distillery in the

Shively section of Louisville, Michter's operations extend to two other sites

in Kentucky. In Springfield, Michter's is farming estate grown grain on its

145-acre property, while in downtown Louisville, Michter's has its second

distillery in the historic Fort Nelson building. Situated in a prime location

on West Main Street opposite Louisville Slugger and on the same block as the

Frazier Museum, Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery features the legendary pot

still system from Michter's Pennsylvania Distillery. When open, it also has

educational tours with whiskey tastings as well as The Bar at Fort Nelson,

which features classic cocktails curated by spirits and cocktail historian

David Wondrich.
