This special Buffalo Trace collection pays tribute to the legendary and extraordinary Sazerac cocktail and the legendary New Orleans bartender Tomas H. Handy, who first made it using Rye Whiskey. A response to consumer requests for more well-aged and barrel-strength Whiskey, this is a collection of uncut and unfiltered Straight Rye Whiskeys full of authentic, rich flavors—a true symbol of the timeless history of New Orleans.

The 2019 expression is comprised of an unknown number of hand-picked barrels aged for over 6 years boasting rich notes of Crème Brûlée, vanilla, and spearmint. Bottled at 125.7 proof (62,85% ABV) in a clear bottle to showcase Whiskey's rich and dark color.


*This bottle is a collector’s item; we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
The Buffalo Trace Distillery was one of the few production facilities that was allowed to remain in operation during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes."
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
