Last month, Buffalo Trace Distillery marked a milestone … filling its eight millionth barrel of bourbon since Prohibition.
And to celebrate, the distillery will be offering a one-of-a-kind Buffalo Trace experience to one lucky fan.
And to be the lucky one, Buffalo Trace Distillery is asking eight million Americans to ditch their New Year’s resolutions and run (even if that means walking, jogging, sprinting or cheering someone on), for bourbon instead.
“The passion we see from our fans is the most inspiring part of what we do,” said Harlen Wheatley, master distiller, in a prepared statement. “We’re asking people to run just one mile for a chance to join us at Buffalo Trace Distillery for a specially curated bourbon experience, and the opportunity to stock their bars with an exclusive collection of some of our finest bourbons for the new year and beyond.”
One fan who “runs” a mile for bourbon will win a first-class trip for two to stay overnight at the invite-only Stagg Lodge (a 4,000 sq. ft. log cabin nestled on the edge of its Whiskey Farm overlooking the distillery, the Kentucky River and historic downtown Frankfort, Ky.) on the distillery grounds (also includes one night in Louisville), dinner prepared by the distillery’s private chef, private tours of the grounds and distillery, and an $800 gift card for gift shop merchandise.
Buffalo Trace Distillery, whose portfolio includes the 2022 Antique Collection, will also donate bourbon, in the name of the winner, to a mutually agreed upon 501(c) charity.
“There’s running … and then there’s running with the goal of bourbon,” said Freddie Johnson, third generation team member and distillery VIP Visitor Lead. “We’ve pulled out all the stops to plan this immersive and exclusive experience for one special bourbon fan.”
Bourbon fans need to check out www.willrunforbuffalotraceburbon.com between Jan. 18th and Feb. 18th for details and to enter the contest.
