Buffalo Trace Distillery releases the 2003 Antique Collection

FRANKLIN COUNTY - Buffalo Trace Distillery is proud to announce the Antique Collection of whiskeys will be returning for the fourth year. The collection is scheduled to hit stores in October and consists of:

George T. Stagg, 15 year

Eagle Rare, 17 year

Sazerac Rye, 18 year

The popularity of the collection continues to grow as consumers discover the diversity of high-quality aged whiskies that only Buffalo Trace has to offer. The Sazerac Rye and George T. Stagg were chosen "Whiskey of the Year" in 2001 and 2002 by Malt Advocate Magazine. "We are very proud of this award winning collection and pleased to make them available again this year. My biggest regret is that we will sell out in a matter of weeks and I have to explain to those unable to acquire some bottles that they will have to wait until next year for more," said Kris Comstock, Bourbon Brand Manager at Buffalo Trace Distillery.

For more information on the Antique Collection you can visit www.greatbourbon.com (http://www.greatbourbon.com) or contact Kris Comstock at kcomstock@buffalotrace.com or (502) 696-5957.
