For the first time since April 2019, the Louisville based distiller will be releasing its Michter’s Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey on a national and international basis this March.
Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco commented, “Our team has been turning out some wonderful Kentucky style ryes over the years, and this 2021 release continues that trend.” Master Distiller Dan McKee observed, “I was really happy when we tasted these barrels. This release has so much of what I look for in a rye.”
Michter’s US*1 Barrel Strength Rye is a single barrel product, and the average proof of the barrels in this March 2021 release is 110.3 proof. The suggested retail price in the United States is $100 for a 750ml bottle. Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson said, “These barrels are at just the right point to highlight the beautiful nuances of a great rye whiskey. This release is a powerhouse.”
