This Ultra-Rare Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey Was Crafted In 1980

Since the company’s inception in 2008, The Last Drop Distillers has been on a constant mission to track down rare and elite spirits to share with a discerning few, placing a premium on, what the brand describes as “the liquid and not the label.” Rather than distilling its own spirits as the outfit’s name might suggest, the London-based firm sources and ages other prestigious alcohol-based offerings, the latest of which is a Buffalo Trace Bourbon from 1980.

The liquor was originally located during an inventory at Buffalo Trace’s Frankfort, Kentucky facility—which is reportedly the oldest continuously-operating American distillery—where it was found hidden away in a corner where it had been forgotten about. Now boasting a unique color and woody taste after aging for the better part of a half-century, this four-decade-old batch features a 45% ABV and has been rebottled in custom TLD bottles. The Last Drop 1980 Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey has been limited to only 240 bottles worldwide, each of which will cost $4,600. For more information on the project, or to order your own bottle, you can check out The Last Drop website linked below.

Purchase: $4,600
