UK-based Drinks International unveiled its annual top 50 list of The World’s Most Admired Whiskies on October 31, 2023. Surpassing all expectations, an American whiskey, Michter’s, claimed the top spot for the first time in history. This prestigious recognition is being celebrated with the release of Michter’s 25 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon, a rare gem in the world of whiskey.
Michter’s President, Joseph J. Magliocco, expressed the company’s elation at being crowned The World’s Most Admired Whiskey, stating, “This release commemorates a truly special moment for us.” This marks a significant milestone in Michter’s legacy, as the last time the company released a 25 Year Bourbon was in 2020. The acknowledgment from an Academy of independent whiskey experts from over 20 countries underscores the global recognition of Michter’s craftsmanship.
To celebrate this historic achievement, Michter’s is set to release its rarest offering, the Michter’s 25 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon, in December. The barrels for this extraordinary bourbon are meticulously selected by Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee and Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. Wilson emphasizes that this release is a unique flavor experience, avoiding the overly oaked, dusty old whiskey character. Instead, it promises a journey through sweet and savory depths, world spices, dark chocolates, fruit characters, and nut oils – a sensory adventure akin to savoring a box of fine chocolates.
Master Distiller Dan McKee expressed his pride in the team behind Michter’s, highlighting the dedication to creating exceptional whiskey, from the widely acclaimed Michter’s US*1 Bourbon to the pinnacle of their lineup, the 25 Year Bourbon. The release of this exceptional whiskey reflects the commitment to quality that defines Michter’s longstanding legacy.
Beyond its main distillery in Louisville, Michter’s extends its operations to two other sites in Kentucky. In Springfield, the company farms estate-grown grain on a 205-acre property, emphasizing a commitment to quality ingredients. Meanwhile, in downtown Louisville, Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery provides educational tours, whiskey tastings, and The Bar at Fort Nelson, curated by spirits and cocktail historian David Wondrich.
