Makers of Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, Blanton’s and other cult bourbon hits, Buffalo Trace Distillery’s next release is trio of fully kosher whiskeys. The whiskeys — available in straight rye, rye and wheat variants — were developed under the guidance of the Chicago Rabbinical Council and are believed to be the first-ever kosher whiskeys.
According to Buffalo Trace, bottling lines at the distillery were flushed before as the whiskey reached its desired age earlier this year to ensure the whiskey was not exposed to any non-Kosher spirits.
“We’re excited that our partnership which we began ten years ago has come to fruition,” stated Rabbi Sholem Fishbane, kashrus administrator Chicago Rabbinical Council. “Our members have shown great interest in the prospect of being able to enjoy a Kosher whiskey. We are very happy Buffalo Trace has taken the steps to make sure this happens.”
Bottles will be released after Passover ends this year on April 16, selling through wholesalers and retailers before Passover begins again in 2021. Buffalo Trace Kosher Whiskey will retail at $40 a bottle.
