About Our Auction

Buffalo Trace will be donating 400 bottles from its 6 millionth barrel to charities across the country in hopes to raise $500,000 for worthy causes.

Last year, Buffalo Trace barreled their 7 millionth barrel of whiskey since Prohibition. They house milestone barrels like this in the world’s tiniest rick house, built to hold just one barrel at a time. When the 7 millionth barrel was rolled off the line in April of 2018, the 6 millionth barrel was removed to age another year in a larger warehouse.

Finally, after a total of 10 years and 11 months of aging, the barrel was bottled this year, filling four hundred 375ml glass bottles. Each bottle has a handwritten description on it and comes packaged in a hardwood box including a piece of stave from the 6 millionth barrel and brochure explaining the significance of this historic barrel.
