Michter's to Release Its Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for the First Time in Three Years

Michter's to Release Its Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for the First Time in Three YearsLOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 19, 2019 After a three-year hiatus, Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey will be released again in December 2019. This year's release of Michter's Celebration is a blend of whiskey taken from six carefully selected barrels. "Working on my first Celebration release was a labor of love for me. Ultimately, I chose to take whiskey from two Kentucky straight bourbon barrels and four Kentucky straight rye barrels in our stocks. Each Celebration release is special and unique, and this year's release differs from the 2016 one, where the whiskey came from three bourbon barrels and three rye barrels," said Michter's Master Distiller Dan McKee.

Tremendous attention is given to finding the perfect barrels for Michter's Celebration. Michter's Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson observed, "It's not just a question of finding this great barrel and putting it with that great barrel. It's a matter of selecting fantastic barrels that go together so well that the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts. The whiskeys in the 2019 release range in age from over a decade to over 30 years old."

When Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey was released in 2013, it marked a significant moment in United States whiskey history. For the first time, an American whiskey company was offering a rare blend for a suggested retail price of several thousand dollars. "At Michter's we had the thought that great whiskey made in the U.S. was a worthy rival for the very finest spirits from other parts of the world, so we came out with the first release of Michter's Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey," remarked Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco.

Only 277 bottles of the 2019 Edition of Michter's Celebration will be released worldwide. It is 115.6 proof / 57.8% alcohol by volume and will have a suggested retail price of $5,000 in the United States.

Louisville-based Michter's has a rich and long legacy of offering traditional American whiskeys of uncompromising quality. With each of its limited production offerings aged to peak maturity, Michter's highly acclaimed portfolio includes bourbon, rye, and American whiskey.

DEWAR'S® Earns Top Industry Recognitions In 2019

DEWAR'S® Earns Top Industry Recognitions In 2019With a series of brand innovations, portfolio accolades, and Stephanie Macleod named Master Blender of the Year, the brand solidifies its position as most awarded blended scotch whisky in the world

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 19, 2019 DEWAR'S® Scotch Whisky announces Stephanie Macleod has been awarded Master Blender of the Year, among various awards for its blended whisky range, by the 2019 International Whisky Competition (IWC) – the annual whisk(e)y tournament rated by an expert panel including whisky author Sébastien Gavillet and world-renowned mixologist Francesco Lafranconi. Macleod's title award arrives during an exceptional competition year for the DEWAR'S blended scotch range, further establishing the brand's commitment to premium scotch and reinforcing its reputation as the most awarded blended scotch whisky in the world.

Making history as the first woman to receive Master Blender of the Year by the IWC, Macleod's ground-breaking work includes assembling the new premium blended scotch series DEWAR'S Double Double – an homage to the brand's signature double-aging process utilized across the entire portfolio and innovating to create a landmark four-step ageing method or 'double-double-ageing'. One of the new expressions in the series, DEWAR'S Double Double 32-Year-Old, took first place as 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old' at the competition, where honors by medal were also awarded to DEWAR'S including:

  • DEWAR'S Double Double 32-Year-Old – Gold; First Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 25-Year-Old – Gold; Second Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 18-Year-Old – Silver; Third Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 18 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 15-Year-Old – Silver; First Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 15 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S Double Double 21-Year-Old – Silver
  • DEWAR'S Double Double 27-Year-Old – Bronze; Third Place 'Best Blended Scotch Whisky over 20 Years Old'
  • DEWAR'S 12-Year-Old – Bronze
  • DEWAR'S White Label – Bronze

"At DEWAR'S we are focused on opportunities to not only contemporize our heritage and credentials, but also stretch the brand out of traditional scotch territories with new expressions that exceed expectations," notes Brian Cox, Vice President DEWAR'S Scotch Whisky North America. "To this end, we are privileged to have Stephanie and welcome her recognition. Her over 20-year career at DEWAR's has served as foundation to many of our award-winning blends and brand innovations that continue to cement DEWAR'S as a leader in the category."

"It is an honour to be named Master Blender of the Year and I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of our entire team who contributes to making DEWAR'S," awardee Stephanie Macleod says. "It is rewarding indeed to know our efforts are met with such appreciation, and I look forward to continuing the momentum with new and innovative ways to reach our trade and consumer communities."

In addition to launching the DEWAR'S Double Double series this year, the brand introduced DEWAR's Caribbean Smooth 8-Year-Old Rum Cask Finish Blended Scotch Whisky – the first blend in a new series of innovative cask finishes being released over the next few years with Macleod at the helm. DEWAR'S and Macleod have also recently pioneered new channels of consumer engagement, leading the first-ever livestream scotch tasting in partnership with Amazon UK and Germany.

ABOUT DEWAR'S SCOTCH WHISKY
Founded in 1846 by John Dewar, DEWAR'S has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in Scotland, to one of the largest Scotch whisky brands in the world.  Best known for its iconic DEWAR'S White Label, it has expanded its family to create a portfolio of premium and super premium whiskies including DEWAR'S 12 Year Old, DEWAR'S 15 Year Old, DEWAR'S 18 Year Old, the exclusive DEWAR'S Signature and most recently DEWAR'S Scratched Cask. These whiskies are crafted using the DEWAR'S oak marrying ageing process. Pioneered by DEWAR'S in 1899, it involves returning the hand-crafted blend to vintage oak casks for further maturation. The result is a smoother taste with a long, lingering finish; a taste that wins medals and applause, making DEWAR'S the world's most awarded blended Scotch. The DEWAR'S® brand is part of the portfolio of Bacardi Limited, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda. Bacardi Limited refers to the Bacardi group of companies, including Bacardi International Limited.  www.Dewars.com

Kavalan's Latest Bottle Features a Studded Crown Fit For a King

Kavalan's Latest Bottle Features a Studded Crown Fit For a KingTAIPEI, Nov. 11, 2019It's an evolution of a company and an ambitious journey from household products, orchids, and rural childhood education through to coffee, beer, and whisky, and this year, even restaurants and bars.

And it's this story that's now encapsulated in a new 1500ml Kavalan whisky, the "King Car Group 40th Anniversary" single malt, to mark the landmark anniversary of Kavalan's parent company.

Already launched in Taiwan, Kavalan's newest special edition - which elegantly combines the creamy richness of toffee with the intense sweetness of dark fruit notes - will be available in select countries globally in 2020.

Kavalan is unable to reveal the exact cask that this extraordinary, flavourful whisky has been aged in, other than to say it's a highly exclusive red wine cask of world-class standing.

CEO, Mr YT Lee, said like the only other whisky to be launched in the group's name, the "King Car Conductor," the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition was fittingly multidimensional, complex and full of depth.

"I am honoured to be part of the journey first begun by my father four decades ago. King Car has always strived hard to deliver the finest quality - a pursuit that defines our character - and this insistence on excellence will continue into the future," Mr YT Lee said.

Master Blender, Ian Chang, said he had made a whisky to celebrate a tremendous milestone.

"It's been aged in a very rare red wine cask whose majesty transfers to a richly intense whisky, delivering very distinct berry flavours and luxuriant toffee," Mr Chang said.

Mr Chang said the packaging paid tribute to Yilan County, which is both Kavalan's homeland and Chairman Mr TT Lee's, through the form of Snow Mountain - Kavalan's water source.

The bottle's smooth yet sturdy shape expresses elegance and strength. Its crown-shaped cork is adorned with world-renowned Swarovski® crystals. Persistence and durability, and harmony with the natural environment, are imparted through the leather and wood casing of the box.

The King Car 40th Anniversary comes encased with a crystal glass tumbler and is limited to 10,000 packs globally.

King Car 40th Anniversary

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Royal auburn

Nose: Powerful and dense with rich notes of red wine exuding dark-skinned Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, with strawberry, bilberry, spice and flourishes of fresh charred oak.

Palate: Thick, mouth-drawing layers of toffee-rich berry fruits, enlivened with flares of spice, notably pepper, clove and tobacco, all brought together with a magnificent wine character.

Finish: Long and sensuous, yielding a gentle mix of signature fruits and soft spices.
