Recently we’ve been musing on some of our favourite everyday whiskies, the drams that you can reach for that show awesome quality and enjoyment without breaking the bank. The one that you’re not afraid to share with mates and relatives without the fear of sacrificing expensive bottles without reciprocal appreciation. The one you can turn into an old fashioned on those warmer days.
When it comes to bourbon, it’s hard to go past Buffalo Trace in those criteria.
One of the most famous and historic bourbon distilleries, Buffalo Trace is the namesake and entry-level expression for a distillery which produces some of the world’s most sought-after bottles. Labels like Pappy Van Winkle, Eagle Rare, OFC, Sazerac, William Larue Weller easily sell for four-figures, particularly in the Australian market, and they all come from the same place as the humble, punching-well-above its weight Buffalo Trace.
To celebrate the whiskey, for no other reason than it being a good time to have a go-to bottle at home, we’re bringing the price down on Buffalo Trace to $55 – that’s $49.50 for members .
On top of that, anyone who buys a bottle of Buffalo Trace – in store or online – between now and 30 June will go into the draw to win a $250 voucher to Old Mate’s Place, one of our favourite Sydney CBD bars. It’s been such a tough time for Sydney (and Australia’s) world class hospitality scene so we hope that the voucher will be a pretty good incentive to get back out on the town once restrictions are lifted. (We’ll be there to share a whiskey across the bar.)
It's fitting to run the promotion in conjunction with Buffalo Trace and Southtrade as the distillery is so synonymous not only with whiskey bars, but also some of the country’s best cocktail haunts.
