Cork & Barrel’s 1st Barrel of Bourbon – Buffalo Trace Bourbon Pick

On Wednesday August 10th, we went to Buffalo Trace Distillery to select our first barrel of bourbon. We had a private tour, then tasted through four different barrels to make our final decision, and then had a wonderful bbq lunch at the distillery. It was a great day, and another milestone in this journey of our bourbon offerings! A special thank you to our friends at Buffalo Trace, who made this experience so special (Freddy for our amazing tour and historical overview and to Beau Beckman, the barrel select manager), to Tim Knittel (Distilled Living), who accompanied us on this journey, to all the folks at RNDC who helped set this up for us, and in particular; Casey Cline, Nelson Smith and our dear friend Cyndi Gatterdam.
