Michter’s also announced Vice President – General Manager Andrea Wilson will add the position of Master of Maturation to her duties. Wilson is well known in the industry circles with her tenure as the first woman to ever serve as Chair of the Kentucky Distillers Association. The company also announced Distillery Manager Dan McKee who worked closely with Heilmann at Booker Noe Distillery, will move up to the Distiller position formerly held by Heilmann.
An excited Andrea Wilson stated, “I am thrilled to have the responsibility of Michter’s Master of Maturation. So much of the great work that’s been done to achieve the quality of Michter’s bourbon and rye has been about all the critical steps that are taken with the distillate after it leaves the still.”
Master Distiller Emeritus Willie Pratt will be honored with the naming of the “Pratt Whiskey Lab” at Michter’s Distillery. Said Magliocco, “Willie is an American whiskey treasure. He knows so much about whiskey, and he has contributed greatly to building our Kentucky distillery and establishing Michter’s as the brand it is today.”
