Michter’s Distillery will wait until 2023 to release its popular 10 Year Bourbon for the next time.
“Over the more than two decades since we restarted Michter’s in Kentucky, we have had several years where we’ve chosen to hold back particular offerings,” says Michter’s President Joseph J. Magliocco. “Our goal is to put out the greatest American whiskey. When we think something is already wonderful, but will become spectacular with a bit more aging, we have not been shy about waiting to release it. When it comes to whiskey, there’s no substitute for patience and time.”
The Louisville-based distiller plans to keep back the barrels originally slated to be bottled this year for one further year of aging.
“While we know our Michter’s supporters will be disappointed, just know we are continuing to stay true to our philosophies of who we are as a company and as a brand by always delivering extraordinary whiskey to those who are willing to wait,” explains Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson stated.
Michter’s 10 Year Bourbon has a suggested retail price of $160 per 750-ml. bottle.
“I’m proud to be at a company that is so laser focused on offering top quality whiskey. This continues the protocol set by our late Master Distiller Willie ‘Dr. No’ Pratt,” says Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee.
