Kentucky whiskey distillery Michter’s recently announced the debut of the 2022 edition of its super premium 20 year bourbon.
The new Michter’s 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon, according to those behind it, was put together by Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee and Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. The two oversee older barrels in Michter’s rickhouses that are monitored closely by the production team.
“With the extra attention given to the older barrels,” said McKee in a prepared statement, “it’s releases like the 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon that make me proud of our maturing team and all of their hard work in aging these beautiful whiskeys.”
“It is a tremendous honor to work on Michter’s 20 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon with our Master Distiller Dan McKee and our incredibly talented team,” said Wilson in a prepared statement, “We spent a lot of time reviewing inventory for this special release and are so excited about the complexity of flavor and quality.
“We strive for a dynamic experience that makes a memorable whiskey moment and this year’s release will not disappoint.”
Plans call for the 2022 edition to ship in early November, following upon the heels of a similar release last year. The proof of this release is 114.2, and it is set to price at $1,200 per 750 ml bottle.
“This is a whiskey that I really look forward to when Dan and Andrea decide to release it,” said Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco. “It’s remarkable that a 20 year bourbon can have so many wonderful qualities without being overly woody.”
