Buffalo Trace Distillery to release rum in July

May 21st, 2008

When I was at the distillery in December, we tasted our way through many whiskey samples. Two samples that I tasted were pretty bad whiskeys. That’s because they weren’t whiskeys. They were rum samples.

According to Mark Brown, Buffalo Trace’s President and CEO, they have created a meritage of the two casks and plan to release the rum in July, as part of their Experimental Collection. As far as I know, this is just a one-off and won’t be repeated anytime in the near future.

The guys at BT always have something interesting up their sleeve, that’s for sure.

    While out in Kentucky last week we had a tour of BT set up and were able to spend some time with Mark – he is a fantastic man… so much creativity. While we weren’t able to taste the rum we did taste several of the experimental whiskies and WOW! – This company definitely knows how to have fun with their jobs. Here’s hoping that the Rum makes its way out to California.

    It was a bottling of only two casks, so they were very limited in options, but I am optimistic that the turnout will be good.
