Thank you to everyone who bid on and purchased one of our special hand painted 1.75L Buffalo Trace Single Barrel bottles as part of the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Auction. With your support we were able to raise over $50,000 for Keep America Beautiful®!
In celebration of Bourbon Heritage Month, Buffalo Trace Distillery is proud to introduce the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Heritage Month Collection. This one-of-a-kind series of whiskey and art will feature 50 1.75L bottles of Buffalo Trace Single Barrel Bourbon hand-painted with designs inspired by iconic elements from each state along with the corresponding artwork and a VIP distillery tour. Available via online auction from September 7 – September 22, all sale proceeds will benefit Keep America Beautiful, the largest community improvement organization in the US.
Artwork for the Collection was done by Louisville, Kentucky-based artist and illustrator Bri Bowers. Known for her wearable art, cardboard sculptures, and illustrations, Bowers is most famous for her watercolor series depicting Louisville's beloved neighborhoods and landmarks and, more recently, the illustrations for Jack Harlow’s “No Place Like Home” tour.
All proceeds raised will support the mission of Keep America Beautiful which is committed to ensuring our nation remains a clean, green, and beautiful place to live. Over the years, Buffalo Trace has donated millions of dollars to charities around the globe, and in 2022 alone the Distillery donated 2,022 bottles of their finest whiskies to raise record-breaking donations for nonprofits around the world.
