•Louisville, Kentucky’s Michter’s has announced the 2022 bottling of the brand’s 10-year-old rye whiskey, the only 10-year-old bottling from the company to be released this year. The single barrel rye is bottled at 46.4% abv and is made from a Kentucky-style mash using a substantial portion of corn and barley to provide balance to the majority rye mash. The whiskey carries a suggested price of $185 a bottle and is available in limited quantities across the U.S. While the company typically also releases a 10-year-old Bourbon, this year they’re holding that for 2023, according to master distiller Dan McKee.
