Buffalo Trace Collaborates With Casey’s To Offer Rare Bourbon Release

Extending their partnership into its third year, popular convenience store chain, Casey’s, has teamed up with Buffalo Trace to offer a rare bourbon exclusively to customers in Illinois. 

In Casey’s 73 stores across the state, customers can find a limited number of 375ml bottles of Buffalo Trace Single Barrel Select Bourbon. The convenience store chain hopes that the exclusive bottlings will help the company begin to “innovate its beer, wine and spirits offerings”. 

The bourbon will be priced at $39.99 and is available exclusively in Illinois. 

Of the collaboration, Fareed Siddiqui, director of packaged beverages for Casey’s, said “Casey’s wants to offer our guests products they can’t find anywhere else — like this unique, single barrel bourbon from Buffalo Trace. The single barrel select bourbon will be a special find in these Illinois stores and we’re excited to see what our guests think of this Buffalo Trace bourbon,”

Buffalo Trace Distillery possesses a rich history that spans nearly 250 years. Its roots date back to 1773. The site was purchased by Edmund H. Taylor in 1870, marking its initial naming as the “Old Fire Copper” distillery. 

The distillery’s name, Buffalo Trace, pays homage to the migrating bison crossing on the Kentucky River. Over the centuries, it has withstood challenges such as fires, floods, and Prohibition, all while maintaining its commitment to quality. 

In 2005, Harlen Wheatley took the helm as Master Distiller, continuing the legacy of bourbon-making at this pioneering distillery.

Casey’s is one of the largest convenience store chains in the United States.

Casey’s General Stores was founded by Don Lamberti in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1959. Initially, it was a remodeling of an existing gas station. 

The first official Casey’s convenience store was opened in Boone, Iowa, in 1968. From those humble beginnings, Casey’s has steadily grown to serve communities across multiple states. 

Today, Casey’s has 2,500 stores in 16 states, making it the third-largest convenience store chain in the US.
