It was exactly 125-years-ago to the day that in 1897, whiskey pioneer, E. H. Taylor Jr. succeeded in having the Bottled in Bond Act passed which set industry standards at American distilleries. Today, the E. H. Taylor, Jr. brand is celebrating this illustrious milestone with the release of 100 bottles sourced from a single, incredibly rare barrel.

Rather than selling the bottles of Bottled in Bond Commemorative whiskey through traditional channels, the Kentucky bourbon brand has joined forces with parent company Buffalo Trace, and country singer Chris Stapleton’s non-profit, Outlaw State of Kind, to auction off all 100 of the elite 750ml commemorative bottles. Barreled on Jan. 5, 2012, this single barrel batch was aged for 9-years and was Bottled in Bond at 100 proof. In addition to a specially-branded label and display case, each bottle is also signed by Chris Stapleton. The first bottles sold will directly benefit the currently much-need disaster relief efforts in Texas after the Lonestar State was recently rocked by frigid temperatures, while the proceeds from the remaining bottles will go to other noble and worthwhile US-based charities. To bid on your own bottle, you can check out the CharrityBuzz auction page where bidding (as of the time of writing) has reached $6,250 with more than two weeks remaining in the sale.
