The Buffalo Trace Prohibition Collection is an annually-released collection of five whiskeys, each representing a brand that was produced by the distillery during Prohibition. Buffalo Trace Distillery has changed names several times over the years, but its history can be traced back as far as 1858, making it the oldest continuously-operating distillery in the United States.
During Prohibition, the distillery was known as the George T. Stagg Distillery, and it was one of six distilleries that was licensed by the U.S. government to produce medicinal whiskey.
The Prohibition Collection honors five brands that were produced between 1920 and 1933, each packaged in a 375ml bottle and box, similar to the packaging that would have been used at the time.
The collection includes:
- Spiritus Frumenti (110 proof wheated bourbon)
- Walnut Hill Whiskey (90 proof high-rye bourbon)
- Three Feathers Blended Whiskey (100 proof)
- Golden Wedding Rye Whiskey (107 proof)
- Old Stagg Whiskey (132.4 proof bourbon)
The collection was announced on September 25, 2023, and will be an annual release from Buffalo Trace. The five-bottle set of 375ml bottles retails for $1000.
