LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Michter’s Distillery, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is releasing the 2015 bottling of its innovative American whiskey US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon on a limited basis. Because Michter’s does not have adequate stocks to meet demand for its items, it is necessary for the company to allocate its products.
Introduced to great acclaim in the Fall of 2014, Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon is a groundbreaking whiskey expression. It is made by taking Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon and then aging it for an additional period in a second custom made barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 18-month air dried wood and then toasted but not charred. The truly unique and delicious taste of Michter’s US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon represents a remarkable achievement given that it is Kentucky Straight Bourbon with nothing extra added or done except placement in a second toasted barrel.
Michter’s has a rich and long legacy of offering traditional American whiskeys of uncompromising quality. With each offering aged to its peak maturity, Michter’s highly acclaimed portfolio includes single barrel rye, small batch bourbon, single barrel bourbon, American Whiskey, and its sour mash whiskey.
Michter’s Toasted Barrel Bourbon is bottled at 91.4 proof (45.7% alcohol by volume), the exact same proof as Michter’s on-going US*1 Bourbon offering. It is offered at a suggested retail price of $53 per 750 ml bottle in the United States.
