Buffalo Trace O.F.C Bourbon

There are a couple tidbits fans of Buffalo Trace may not know about the distillery. First, it wasn’t initially called Buffalo Trace when it was founded by Colonel E.H. Taylor in 1870. Second, that at the time of its founding, the building featured copper fermentation vats, column stills, and a first-of-its-kind steam heating system. Thus, giving light to its original name: Old Fashioned Copper Distillery.

Today, Buffalo Trace pays tribute to this history with a very special release, limited to 200 bottles, of bourbon from years 1980, ’82 and ’83. They’re offering these up at no cost to various non-profits organizations across the US in order to help them raise significant funds for their causes. And in addition to offering 35-year vintage bourbon, Buffalo Trace is packaging the good stuff in hand-cut crystal bottles with the vintage year featured on the front. The bottles are also replicas of original O.F.C decanters from the 1900s featuring detailed fluting in the glass as well. They’re then hand-polished and later inlaid with copper lettering spelling “O.F.C” on the front of the bottle. Buffalo Trace expects an individual bottle will raise at least $10,000 for each non-profit that participates.
