For the first time since April 2019, Michter’s Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey will launch nationally, hitting shelves this March.
Michter’s US*1 Barrel Strength Rye is a single barrel product. The average proof of the barrels for the March 2021 release is 110.3 proof.
“I was really happy when we tasted these barrels,” says Master Distiller Dan McKee. “This release has so much of what I look for in a rye.”
The suggested retail price is $100 per 750-ml. bottle.
“These barrels are at just the right point to highlight the beautiful nuances of a great rye whiskey,” says Michter’s Master of Maturation, Andrea Wilson. “This release is a powerhouse.”
Currently all types of Michter’s are on allocation because demand exceeds supply, the company says.
In addition to Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery and Michter’s Shively Distillery, both located in Louisville, the company operates a 145-acre farm and operations in Springfield, Kentucky.
