The Last Drop is releasing their first ever American Whiskey: a 1982 Bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery.
This 1982 whiskey is actually an 18-year single barrel bourbon. It was distilled in Frankfort, Kentucky at what was then known as the George T. Stagg Distillery (now Buffalo Trace). The “last drops” of this distillate were removed from the barrel for storage in 2000 and bottled just this year (2018) at 90 proof.
“We are tremendously excited to present the 1982 Bourbon, our second smallest release to date,” says Rebecca Jago, Joint Managing Director of The Last Drop. “With only 44 bottles worldwide, this is sure to become a collector’s item. The Bourbon is a wonderful spirit: deep and rounded, with delicious notes of dried fruit and honey. We only wish there was more to go around.”
