Buffalo Trace Sixth Millionth Barrel Bottle

Independent, American whiskey distillers Buffalo Trace recently released the sixth millionth barrel of its multi award winning bourbon - Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – from which 400 bottles have been filled and donated to a variety of charities and causes across the States to auction off and help raise funds.

However, one lucky bottle has made its way to the UK and online whisky auctioneers, Just Whisky have added it to their October auction with all proceeds being donated to UK charity, Breast Friends and Family, a charity which supports patients through a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery, providing the little things that the NHS are not in a position to, that will make a difference to patients and how they feel about themselves.

Aged for 10 years 11 months, the 375ml bottles have been packaged in a commemorative hardwood display box that is individually numbered. It includes a handwritten description on the glass door, a piece of the charred oak stave from the barrel, and a small brochure explaining the significance of this collector’s edition.

Commenting on this extremely special bourbon in the auction, Graham Crane, Co-founder of Just Whisky said: "It is an absolute honour to have been asked by the charity to support their fundraising efforts with the auction of this rare bottle of Buffalo Trace. The whisky has no reserve price, but we really hope to generate somewhere closer to £1,000 for the charity. This is a unique whiskey that wouldn’t typically find its way to the UK and it will potentially be another nine years until the 7th millionth barrel is available, so we hope this will generate wide interest with whiskey lovers and collectors across the UK, Europe and Asia too."

The October auction is now live and bids will take place up until Sunday 20th October 2019. To place a bid visit www.just-whisky.co.uk
