The Buffalo Trace Distillery is one of the oldest, biggest, and best bourbon distilleries in America. They produce Buffalo Trace, Col E.H. Taylor, George T. Stagg, Eagle Rare, Stagg Jr., W.L. Weller, Old Taylor, and quite a few others.
As is the case with every single ultra-premium bourbon in America, demand has gone through the roof in recent years. Depending on where you live, Buffalo Trace Distillery’s ultra-premium bourbons might range from ‘really hard’ to ‘impossible’ to find. Which is what makes the unique Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection so special.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection is the coolest, hardest-to-get Buffalo Trace bourbon that you’ve never heard of, until now.
The Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection is part of Buffalo Trace’s Bourbon Heritage Month (September) celebration. Essentially, what they’ve done is create a unique bottle for each state. If you’re reading this and you live in California, you can bid on the one-of-a-kind ‘California’ Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection bottle. The same goes for Florida, New York, Illinois, Texas, Colorado, Kentucky, etc.
These bottles are currently up for auction via Proxibid, and you can find the auction page on Buffalo Trace’s Bourbon Heritage website. All proceeds from the sales are going to the Keep America Beautiful foundation and the artwork was done by Kentucky-based artist Bri Bowers.
How to get a bottle for yourself…
Currently, the ‘cheapest’ bottle available to bid on in the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection is $450 for Arizona and New Mexico, while the most expensive bottles available to bid on are $2,500 for North Carolina, $2,600 for Virginia, $2,200 for Kentucky, $1,950 for Florida, and $1,450 for Tennessee.
Artis Bri Bowers said “This was a particularly exciting project for me for a few reasons: first, I’m a huge bourbon fan and second, because I have really a special connection with my home state of Kentucky, which also happens to be the homeplace of Buffalo Trace, Central to much of my art is the idea of celebrating connectedness to places that are important to you, and I love that with this collection we’re doing just that while also giving back, too.”
Vice President of Global Marketing for Buffalo Trace Distillery Sara Saunders added “as a National Historic Landmark, Buffalo Trace Distillery understands that the diverse beauty of our nation requires care and attention to ensure future generations continue to benefit. Keep America Beautiful is a leader in this charge, and we’re thrilled to support their important work with this one-of-a-kind offering, Giving back to communities is a core value at Buffalo Trace Distillery and it’s an honor to work alongside such inspiring changemakers.”
The auctions on these are running from 9AM ET on September 7 – 7PM ET on September 22. You can visit the Buffalo Trace Distillery website to learn more.
