After Nine Year Wait, Michter’s Releases 25 Year Old Bourbon


Michter’s Master Distiller Pamela Heilman has approved the release of Michter’s 25-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon to the company’s distributor network for sale this November. The 2017 release marks the first bottling of Michter’s 25-Year-Old Bourbon since 2008.

“I take the mentors doctor know position as the gatekeeper for releasing whiskey very seriously,” said Heilman. “When I tasted this 25 year Bourbon, I knew immediately it was perfectly aged.” Michter’s President Joseph Magliocco observed, “this whiskey has really matured beautifully. Sipping it is a magnificent experience.”

When this Bourbon was last released, George W. Bush was concluding his presidency under a cloud. As such, Michter’s 25-Year-Old is considered rare and dearer than even the fantastically popular Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old Bourbon. A review of online retailers revealed only one bottle of the 2008 release available-for-sale, and that priced at nearly $7000. That market price tag is double that of Pappy Van Winkle 23-year-old, which is released annually.

The new Michter’s 25-Year-Old is bottled at 116.2 proof, with the recommended retail price of $800. Consumers will indeed be lucky to find a bottle priced at that point.
