Michter’s Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann has approved the 2018 release of Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye. These barrels were selected from Michter’s stocks of aging whiskeys by Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson, who assessed them with Ms. Heilmann.
Shipments of the 2018 release of Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye will begin shortly before the Fourth of July holiday as a shortage in supply of Michter’s whiskeys continues.
“We have been expanding our operations, but great whiskey takes time,” commented Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco. “
Michter’s Distiller and Vice President Production Dan McKee, an integral member of the distillery’s tasting panel, had the opportunity to sample the 2018 release of Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye prior to its bottling, and he commented, “I’m excited about this 10 Year Rye release. It’s a great representation of a Kentucky style rye at a really sweet spot in the maturation process.”
The suggested U.S. retail price per 750ml bottle of Michter’s 10 Year Rye is $160.
