Buffalo Trace launches its annual Kosher bottlings

First introduced in 2020, Buffalo Trace Distillery began working with the Chicago Rabbinical Council in 2010, to release what they believe to be the first authentic Kosher whiskey. 

Now that the whiskey has reached its desired age and is ready for bottling, the bottling lines at the distillery will be flushed completely beforehand to ensure the whiskey is not exposed to any non-Kosher spirits.

Commenting on the launch, Drew Mayville, Master Blender at Buffalo Trace, said: “We were overwhelmed with the popularity of our Kosher Whiskey when we first released it last year. We realize having a truly certified Kosher whiskey is important to not only the Jewish community, but also a broader audience, and we’re pleased that we have the ability to offer it each year to reach this audience.”  

Limited in quantities, the new Buffalo Trace Kosher bottlings, will be available next month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £32.99.
