The distillery is welcoming the new year by donating 2,022 bottles, including a unique OFC Vintage
The Kentucky-based Buffalo Trace Distillery is aiding the many charitable organisations across the world, in need of assistance, by donating 2,022 bottles of its finest whiskeys in 2022.
The distillery hopes to raise record-breaking donations for nonprofit organisations the world over. While the Distillery has a robust database of charities, it would like to grow the potential range of recipients to impact more non-profits.
Organizations and registered charities are encouraged to register for a chance to be awarded a bottle which the nonprofit can then use for fund raising. Buffalo Trace will take care of sending the bottle to the selected organization, the only thing asked in return is for the recipient to report back on how much money it raised.
Included in the offering of 2,022 bottles will be the world’s first six litre bottle Bourbon non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which contain Bourbon distilled in 1982 in Buffalo Trace Distillery’s O.F.C. line.
Other bottles in the 2,022 line-up being donated for selected nonprofits to use for fundraising include:
300 375ml bottles of The Single Oak Project Bourbon, a very limited release from the most extensive bourbon experiment ever undertaken
Weller vertical consisting of Weller Special Reserve, Weller Antique 107, Weller 12 year old, Weller Full Proof, Weller Single Barrel and Weller Craft Your Perfect Bourbon (CYPB)
Blanton’s vertical with Blanton’s Original Single Barrel, Blanton’s Gold and Blanton’s Straight from the Barrel Bourbons
E.H. Taylor, Jr. special release collection consisting of E.H. Taylor, Jr. 18 Year Marriage; E.H. Taylor, Jr. Amaranth; E.H. Taylor, Jr. Four Grain; and E.H. Taylor, Jr. Warehouse C Bourbons
Five bottles (each six liters in size) of the aforementioned O.F.C. Bourbon, distilled in 1982, available via NFT in mid-February, more details coming
And many more whiskies from the world’s most award-winning Distillery
“We really want to make an impact in 2022,” said Sara Saunders, vice president, Bourbon, Buffalo Trace Distillery. “We’ve got a wonderful database so far of nonprofit organizations, but we encourage others from across the U.S. and the world to register their charitable organization, as we know the need is great. We’ve handpicked some of the best whiskies from across our portfolio, in hopes they garner top dollar for the recipients.”
