Rare Bourbon, Great Cause
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing is auctioning off a very rare bottle of Buffalo Trace O.F.C Bourbon (1982) with all proceeds going to help their excellent cause. This auction is not for the faint of heart or lite of wallet as similar bottles have gone for as much as $10,000. However, you would be hard pressed to find a better cause to support while drinking Whiskey. Here is the link to the auction.
COLONEL E.H. TAYLOR JR. CHRISTENED THE O.F.C. DISTILLERY IN 1870 AND THIS LEGENDARY WHISKEY BRAND HAS BEEN REVERED EVER SINCE.
The most state-of-the-art distillery of its era featured copper fermentation vats, column stills, and a first-of-its-kind steam heating system, still used in our aging warehouses today. This very rare and collectible bourbon honors the O.F.C. Distillery, a National Historic Landmark known today as Buffalo Trace Distillery. Each hand-cut crystal bottle is vintage dated according to the specific year in which the bourbon was distilled. Enjoy this whiskey of a bygone era, sourced from barrels of yesteryear.
The packaging for O.F.C. matches the splendor of the whiskey itself, in lead free crystal bottles with detailed fluting engraved into the mold. Glass artisans cut the shoulder facets using equipment created exclusively for Buffalo Trace Distillery. Each bottle then is manually polished to achieve maximum glass brilliance before in-laying cut copper lettering to spell out “O.F.C.” on the front. A paper label is then hand applied below with the vintage prominently noted, along with a label on the back of the bottle noting the milestones for the vintage year of the bottle.
