In pursuit of its goal of offering the greatest American whiskey, Michter’s first released its Celebration Sour Mash in 2013. This watershed moment in United States whiskey history marked the first time that an American company was offering a rare blend intended to rival the finest spirits made anywhere else in the world. For this release, Michter’s Master Distiller Dan McKee consulted with Michter’s Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. He selected whiskey from seven extraordinary barrels, three Kentucky Straight Bourbon and four Kentucky Straight Rye, with the youngest being over 12 years old and the oldest being over 30 years old. The fourth ever release of Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash, the 2022 Edition, is McKee’s second.
