About O.F.C. Bourbon
Straight Bourbon Whiskey must be aged in oak for at least two years, but this O.F.C. release matured much longer. Recipe and age will vary by vintage, but many are expected to mature for twenty years or more. Barrels are evaluated regularly and some whiskey will be removed from the barrels as taste reaches the peak of flavor. Each hand-cut crystal bottle is vintage-dated according to the specific year in which the Bourbon was distilled.
This very rare and collectible bourbon honors the O.F.C. Distillery, a National Historic Landmark that is known today as Buffalo Trace Distillery. The most state-of-the-art distillery of its era featured copper fermentation vats, column stills, and a first-of-its-kind steam heating system that is still used to make award-winning bourbon whiskey in our aging warehouses today.
Rare and Collectible Bourbon
FRANKFORT, FRANKLIN COUNTY, KY (April 3, 2018) – This spring Buffalo Trace Distillery will unveil three new O.F.C. Vintage bourbons. These rare bottles are each vintage dated according to the specific year in which the bourbon was distilled at Buffalo Trace Distillery. This vintage release includes bourbon whiskey from the years 1985, 1989 and 1990.
The three unique vintages are extremely rare, as only one barrel was bottled from each year noted. Very little whiskey remained in these three barrels. The 1985 barrel yielded 61 bottles in total. The 1989 barrel had even less bourbon inside, only enough to fill 18 bottles. The 1990 barrel produced 63 bottles.
