Buffalo Distilling Company will release the first ever “Bottled In Bond” bourbon whiskey produced in the city of Buffalo, to coincide with Kentucky Derby Day. The event will be held at Buffalo Distilling Co., 860 Seneca St. in the Larkinville District of Buffalo on Saturday, May 7, starting at 1 p.m. There will be live music by the Vinnie Barbarino Experience from 3 to 6 p.m., while the Kentucky Derby will be shown live at 6:57 p.m. Sales and tastings of the Bottled In Bond bourbon will continue all day. Admission is free.
This release is significant because it represents the first ever Bottled In Bond bourbon to be produced in the city of Buffalo. To be considered “Bottled In Bond,” the bourbon must be aged at least four years, be 100 proof and be produced completely by the company on the label. Whiskey aficionados know that the Bottled In Bond label (which goes back to the Bottled In Bond Act of 1897) means they are getting the best possible product from a distillery — the “good stuff!”
Buffalo Distilling Co. is a New York farm distillery and produces whiskey and other products made from local grain. One Foot Cock Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey is mashed, fermented, distilled and aged in oak barrels entirely on site at their Buffalo distillery.
