Celebration 2016 Sour Mash
Michter's 2016 Celebration Sour Mash
The initial 2013 release of Michter's Celebration Sour Mash marked a category defining moment for ultra-premium American whiskey. It demonstrated that a product made in the United States could be the equal of the very greatest, most revered spirits made anywhere else in the world. Comprised of Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Kentucky Straight Rye taken from the most extraordinary barrels in Michter's stocks, the 2016 Release of Michter's Celebration Sour Mash is a unique blend of first-use barrel whiskeys aged anywhere from over one decade to over 30 years old. Those whiskeys were personally chosen by Willie Pratt shortly before he moved on from the position of Michter's Master Distiller to his current position as Michter's Master Distiller Emeritus.
