Bourbon dusts down the Antiques


BUFFALO Trace, the US bourbon distillery, has released the 2011 edition of its annual Antique Collection.

The annual release of small batch whiskies this year includes: Sazerac Rye 18 Year Old; Eagle Rare 17 Year Old; George T Stagg; William Larue Weller; and Thomas H Handy Sazerac Rye. A limited number will be available in the UK through distributor Hi-Spirits.
“There’s always strong demand for the UK allocations of the Antique Collection from top-end whisky bars, as well as specialist off-trade retailers,” said Hi-Spirits chairman Jeremy Hill.
