EDWINS will be auctioning off this rare bottle of bourbon to commemorate our 7th anniversary. Beginning October 13th and running through November 1st at 5pm, bidders will have a chance to not only support EDWINS mission but grab once in a life time bourbon.
In April 2018, Buffalo Trace Distillery, based in Frankfort, Kentucky, rolled its seven millionth barrel produced since Prohibition into Warehouse V, the only bonded single-barrel aging warehouse in the world. That indicated that the sixth millionth barrel that had been in Warehouse V since 2008 needed to be moved into another warehouse to mature for another year, and this bourbon has now aged a full 10 years 11 months.
The six millionth barrel of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was filled into four hundred (400) 375ml bottles that are being made available exclusively to non-profit organizations across the United States free of charge to auction off to raise funds for their worthwhile causes.
Not available in stores, each bottle from the sixth millionth barrel, valued at $1,250, has a beautifully handwritten description on the glass. Each of the 400 bottles is packaged in a numbered hardwood showcase box that includes a piece of the charred oak stave from the historic barrel and a small brochure explaining the significance of this collector’s edition.
Buffalo Trace Distillery, one of the oldest and most renowned distilleries in the United States, announced that Acts 4 Ministry, Inc. is one of only three non-profit organizations selected in Connecticut to receive one of the bottles of this limited edition straight bourbon whiskey.
Kris Comstock, Buffalo Trace Senior Marketing Director, commented, “We’re thrilled to do something with the 400 bottles to help people in need. We decided on the 375ml size bottles, rather than a larger size, to allow for more bottles so we can help more charities. Our hope is that whiskey enthusiasts will help deserving non-profit groups raise serious money. These bottles are beautiful, the package is first class, and the bourbon tastes amazing. Our goal is to raise $500,000 for charity.”
