Buffalo Trace Six Millionth Barrel Bourbon Fundraiser

Buffalo Trace Six Millionth Barrel Bourbon Fundraiser

In 2019 CVSR was selected as one of 400 non-profits across the country to receive Buffalo Trace Distillery’s charitable offering of limited-edition bottles. The bottling is from the distillery’s 6 millionth barrel of bourbon.

To raise funds for CVSR’s Preservation Fund, a Bourbon Tasting event will be held on Thursday, April 23. Guests who attend will be entered into a drawing to win the right to purchase the Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged 10 years, 11 months, and packaged in a numbered collector’s edition hardwood box, which includes a piece of the charred oak stave from the historic barrel.

The event will include a welcome cocktail (courtesy of The Spotted Owl), four samples of bourbon, heavy appetizers, and a two-hour train in the historic Rail Diesel Car (RDC). Bourbon samples included in the tasting are listed below.

Tickets are $250 each with all proceeds benefiting CVSR’s Preservation Fund, allowing the railroad to continue to provide historical and educational experiences.

The tasting departs from Rockside Station at 6 p.m. and will arrive back at 8 p.m. Seating is limited to 32 guests and tickets will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. Ages 21 and older.
