2018 Release of Michter’s 20 Year Bourbon Arriving in Stores Next Month
The 2018 release of Michter’s 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon will be available at select retailers starting November 2018. This will be the first release of Michter’s 20 Year Bourbon in two years, as supply shortages have limited availability of their older, age stated products.
“We’re really proud of our 20 year and older offerings,” commented Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco. “They come from stocks that we purchased years ago, and we feel that the barrels have developed really well.” Recognizing the critical importance of rickhouse management in the aging of older whiskeys, Michter’s Distillery has the position of Master of Maturation. This is held by Andrea Wilson, the first woman to ever serve as Chair of the Kentucky Distillers Association. Wilson observed, “One of the most exciting aspects of my job is when I sample older barrels. These barrels were really special and we are thrilled to share this year’s 20 Year Bourbon release with our consumers.”
The 2018 release of Michter’s 20 Year Bourbon is bottled at 57.1% ABV (114.2 proof) and carries a suggested retail price of $700 for a 750ml bottle.
