Newest trend in bourbon? Charity. From charity labels to charity auctions, bourbon drinkers are balancing their vices with giving back. Buffalo Trace announced today the offering of 400 limited edition bottles from its sixth millionth barrel of bourbon to non-profits across the country. The bottles are being offered at no charge for the charities to auction off and raise money for their worthwhile causes.
The six millionth barrel bottles of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey are aged 10 years, 11 months and are packaged in a numbered collector’s edition hardwood showcase box that includes a piece of the charred oak stave from the historic barrel and small brochure explaining the significance of this collector’s edition. The bottles are 375ml and have a handwritten description on the bottle explaining the significance.
Over a dozen bottles are coming to Tennessee charities. Stay tuned for details on where and how these bottles will be auctioned. Good luck!
