Bourbon Woman and Michter's Master Distiller, Pam Heilmann, Announces First Special Release

Michter's Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann has approved the 2017 release of Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye. It will go on sale in March. This special release marks the first one by Heilmann, who in 2016 became the first woman since Prohibition to serve as Master Distiller at a Kentucky Distillers' Association distillery.

"At Michter's, the Master Distiller assumes the 'Dr. No' position with its responsibility to decide if a whiskey should or should not be released," said Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco. "Pam is a great distiller with tremendous whiskey knowledge. With her in charge we couldn't be in better hands."

"It's fitting that the first release I ok'd as Michter's Master Distiller would be a Rye because Michter's roots are deeply embedded in Rye whiskey," said Heilmann.
