Lot Details & Additional Photographs
This spectacular bottle of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is part of philanthropic efforts by Buffalo Trace Distillery and is being auctioned to benefit APS of Durham, NC.
APS of Durham
is a nonprofit building lifelong bonds between people and animals through education, community outreach and providing care for animals in need.
Aged for 10 years 11 months, the bottles have been packaged in a numbered hardwood showcase box that includes a handwritten description on the glass door, a piece of the charred oak stave from the barrel, and a small brochure explaining the significance of this collector’s edition.
Although the wine & whisky director, Mark Solomon, is quite fond of all three nonprofits auctioning Sixth Millionth Barrel bottles, the APS of Durham happens to be a very special organization to Mark. It just so happens that he met his wife, Jennifer, at an APS of Durham evening at the Washington Duke in 2007. In gratitude, the successful bidder of this particular bottle will also win the following:
Private Wine (& Whisky) Tasting for you and 3 friends (4 people total) at the Wine & Whisky Director's home in downtown Hillsborough, NC. Which bottles will Mark open? Who knows. But he promises not to disappoint. Not local? Well now you have a great excuse to attend the next wine auction in person!
NV, Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 45%, into neck, #374 of 400 (1 375 ml)
