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 Millionth Barrel will not be available in stores. Bottles will only be available to non-profit organizations in the United States wishing to raise funds for their charity.
The Compass Center has the only bottle available in South Dakota, and one of only a handful in the Upper Midwest. The bottle is being raffled off in conjunction with a tasting event to be held on November 22nd, 2019 at The Sanford Event Barn in Sioux Falls, SD. (Need not be present to win.)
(As of 11/20 all ticket purchases will be held at Will Call. Those not picked up will be mailed to the address provided for accounting purposes.)
The Compass Center would like to thank JJ's Wine & Spirits, Sazerac, Republic National Distributing Company, and Sanford for their partnership on this event.
