This stunning Michter’s Sour Mash Celebration Whiskey is a blend of six rye and bourbon barrels, ranging in ages from over 10 years old up to 33 years old, meaning this beauty exhibits some of the oldest American whiskey ever bottled!
Unveiled in 2016 as the second release in the Michter’s Celebration Whiskey series – the first and third were released in 2013 and 2019, respectively. The release was the swan song of Michter’s Master Distiller, Willie Pratt before he was replaced by Pamela Heilmann as the first female since Prohibition to serve as master distiller at a Kentucky Distillers’ Association distillery.
Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash 2016 has been bottled at 116.8 proof (58.4% ABV) and is one of just 256 individually numbered bottles that comes with a stunning presentation case and wax-sealed COA.
Featured in Ian Buxton’s “101 Legendary Whiskies You’re Dying to Try But (Possibly) Never Will” book.
Please note, there is a small cosmetic scratch on the rear of the outer packaging, the rest of the presentation and bottle are in pristine condition – see images inset for fine detail.
