Buffalo Trace Distillery’s 6th Millionth Barrel
In April 2018, Buffalo Trace Distillery rolled its seven millionth barrel produced since Prohibition into Warehouse V, the world’s only bonded single barrel aging warehouse. That meant, of course, the existing sixth millionth barrel that had been residing in Warehouse V since 2008 would need to take up new residence.
Promptly moved into another warehouse to mature for another year, this bourbon has aged a full 10 years 11 months. The six millionth barrel of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been filled into 375ml bottles and is being made available exclusively to non-profit organizations for fund raising opportunities.
Each bottle from the Sixth Millionth Barrel has a beautifully handwritten description on the glass. The bottles in turn have been packaged in a numbered 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. This commemorative bottling of the Buffalo Trace Sixth Million Barrel will not be available in stores.
