The 2021 Edition of Michter’s “20 Year Bourbon” will mark its first release since the prior one in 2019. The 2021 Ed was named named “Most Admired American Whiskey” by UK-based Drinks International.
“I really enjoy this release because the barrels that our Master Distiller Dan McKee and our Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson selected for it are so layered and rich– Joseph J. Magliocco, Michter’s President
Andrea Wilson notes, “This whiskey really showcases how thoughtful care and attention throughout the aging life can lead to an absolutely beautiful expression. Sipping it mirrors the experience of savoring a fine, decadent dessert.”
Per Dan McKee,“We pay extra special attention to our barrels once they reach 15 years because we want the barrels we offer to achieve the perfect balance of flavor and oak-driven complexity.”
On October 21st, 2021, Drinks International published its inaugural list of The World’s Most Admired Whiskies. In describing the Academy of voters assembled to rank the whiskies, Drinks International stated, “Our Academy consists of buyers, bar owners, writers, educators, and other specialists who carry no affiliation with any brand to ensure that the results burden no bias and retain integrity across the board.” Michter’s was voted the number one most admired American Whiskey and the number four most admired whiskey on the entire list.
The proof of this 2021 release is 114.2 (57.1% ABV), and the suggested U.S. retail price for a 750ml bottle is $750. For more information, please visit www.michters.com.
