In honor of Women’s History Month, Buzzard’s Roost Whiskey and the Bourbon Women Foundation teamed up for a raffle to support women in the industry with education, leadership training and mentorship.
Buzzard’s Roost donated two bottles of its ultra-rare 15-Year-Old Bourbon for a special raffle that started March 8th, which is International Women’s Day. Two winners will be drawn on Instagram Live on Wednesday, March 16th. Raffle tickets are $50 each and can be purchased from the Bourbon Women Foundation website.
“We are very excited to donate these two priceless bottles to the Bourbon Women Foundation,” said Buzzard’s Roost co-founder and CEO Judy Hollis Jones in a prepared statement. “As an owner of a whiskey company, I am always eager to help other women succeed in this challenging business.”
There are only 12 bottles of Buzzard’s Roost 15-Year-Old Bourbon in existence, and they will be available exclusively through charity raffles and auctions. A bottle donated to the Kentucky Distiller’s Association auction to benefit tornado relief in Western Kentucky sold for $3,500 in December.
“We are so grateful to Buzzard’s Roost for these two exciting bottles,” said Bourbon Women Foundation Chair Regina Quick. “We expect these ‘unicorn’ bottles to drive a lot of interest, with each ticket sale helping our Foundation in its mission to support women in the spirits industry.”
Buzzard’s Roost Sipping Whiskey focuses on what the brand says is treating barrels in deliberate ways to achieve rare and exceptional flavors. Buzzard’s Roost is woman-owned and led, and is currently distributed throughout KY, MA, Ohio and NM with more states coming soon.
The Bourbon Women Foundation, a 501c non-profit, was launched in December of 2021 to help develop new women leaders in the spirits industry. Through leadership training, mentorship programs and professional development opportunities, the Bourbon Women Foundation is dedicated to supporting women from all walks of life in the spirits industry.
