The historic Buffalo Trace distillery and the Tin Can Tourists have partnered on a limited edition bourbon for the TCT Centennial. Tin Can Tourists members selected a barrel of Buffalo Trace bourbon that has been bottled and will be released at TCT Centennial events in 2019. Only 48 bottles will be available of this great “american spirit”.
The reason the Tin Can Tourists choose to work with Buffalo Trace is that their distillery is 200 years old and the most historic distillery in America. Just as the Tin Can Tourists have travelled across america, in Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway that was followed by America’s early pioneers. On the spot where the buffalo migration route crossed the Kentucky River, they’ve been making legendary bourbon whiskey for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America and the Tin Can Tourists is the oldest trailer club in America.
Tin Can Tourists worked with Beau Beckman to select the barrel and bottle the bourbon. Born into one of America’s preeminent bourbon families, Beau Taylor Beckman practically has bourbon in his blood. Beau is the sixth generation descendant of Col. Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., celebrated as the “father of the modern bourbon industry” and former owner of the Kentucky distillery known today as Buffalo Trace.
Beau grew up fascinated by family stories of the great E. H. Taylor, Jr. and aspired to join the bourbon industry. Today at Buffalo Trace Distillery, Beau helps customers from around the world select their very own barrels of bourbon. As Barrel Select Manager he orchestrates the experience entirely as distillery ambassador, barrel custodian, and hand-bottling steward.
Availability of these special bottles will be announced in 2019
