• Lottery One features five bottles (four for individual consumers, one for licensees) of Michter’s Bourbon Kentucky 25 Year Old 116 Proof, a straight bourbon distilled from a select mash bill then matured for more than a quarter of a century in specially chosen, new charred American white oak barrels.
