Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey is back after a three-year hiatus.
The unique blend of whiskey, which is a mixture from six carefully chosen barrels, will be released again in December 2019.
“It’s not just a question of finding this great barrel and putting it with that great barrel,” Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson explained. “It’s a matter of selecting fantastic barrels that go together so well that the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts. The whiskeys in the 2019 release range in age from over a decade to over 30 years old.”
When Michter’s released its Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey in 2013, it marked the first time that an American Whiskey company offered a are blend for a suggested retail price of several thousand dollars.
The 2019 Edition of Michter’s Celebration will be released worldwide in December for $5,000 per bottle. Only 277 bottles will be available; it is 115.6 proof / 57.8% alcohol by volume.
