“For over 20 years at Michter’s, we have been hard at work trying to show that American Rye can be a world class spirit. Along with our US*1 Rye, our 10 Year Rye has led the way for us. In fact, the first rye released by Kentucky Michter’s was our 10 Year Rye,” commented Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco.

KENTUCKY RYE STYLE: Different from many of the rye whiskeys produced in Indiana, Canada, and elsewhere, Michter’s 10 Year Rye bears the hallmarks of its home state as a quintessential “Kentucky-style” rye. Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee said, “When I came to Michter’s, I developed a greater appreciation for Kentucky-style rye with its additional flavor nuances that come from having more corn and more malted barley in a majority rye mashbill.”

The barrels released for this 2024 bottling were approved by Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. Wilson observed, “What strikes me about the 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye is its elegance and complexity without being spice dominant. The spice is beautifully integrated with hints of floral notes, fruit, honey, citrus and chocolate that create a wonderfully balanced experience perfect for a summer evening.”

A 92.8 proof (46.4% alcohol by volume) spirit, Michter’s 10 Year Rye has a suggested retail price of $200 in the U.S. The Louisville-based distillery plans to allocate this release in limited quantities to its export markets as well.
