100 Bourbon Sets for 100 Charities

Buffalo Trace Distillery is now accepting applications for the “100 Bourbon Sets for 100 Charities” charity initiative, a program honoring the legacy of Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Often referred to as the founding father of the modern bourbon industry, Taylor was one of Buffalo Trace Distillery’s former owners and an instrumental figure in the movement that led to the 1897 passage of the Bottled in Bond Act. Bottled in Bond required, among many things, that bourbons be 100 proof, and “100 Bourbon Sets for 100 Charities” pays homage to this distinction.

If you would like your organization to be considered to receive a bourbon set, please complete the form below. Interested organizations should consider the following criteria when applying: 

  • Your organization needs to be a registered 501(c)(3) or similar tax exempt organization, and in good standing under your state’s charity laws.
  • Selected organizations must use their bourbon set for fundraising purposes before July 31, 2024
  • Selected organizations must report their earnings by August, 1, 2024.

Please also note that charity and alcoholic beverage laws vary widely from state to state, which may impact the ability to make or receive an alcohol donation. Given the volume of requests we receive, please remember that submitting a request does not guarantee that you will receive a donation.

Section 501(c)(3) is a portion of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and a specific tax category for nonprofit organizations.
