    Buffalo Trace comes Down Under!!

    Good news for all Australians: Buffalo Trace will soon be available in Australia, with widespread distribution. Sazerac have partnered up with Southtrade International to distribute their fine bourbon. Hopefully we will see more of their products filter into Australia via the right channels to keep the price right.
    I hope for around a $60 price tag. Press release attached.

    Re: Buffalo Trace comes Down Under!!

    That is bloody awesome news!!!!!!! It brings a tear to my eyes (in a good way)........ We've waited a long time for this!!!! I remember talking to Ken Webber about a BT release Downunder back in 05/06, and I got the impression it had been on the drawing board for a fair while. I can't wait to crack my first bottle

    On an aside.... $60 would be an interesting price point. It'd put it at approx $10 more than Blantons Special Reserve sells for.

    I just spoke (via email) to one of the contacts at Southtrade International.... They also distribute Rittenhouse Rye nationwide. I'm waiting on a reply back to find out where I can get some locally.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Maybe in recognition of this auspicious occasion we can make BT bourbon of the month seeing how that hasn't changed in 5 months.

    The closes place (to me) that they provided was the CruBar bottle shop in the Valley. They have a couple of bottles of Rittenhouse at $80 per bottle. In the past, I've also seen them carrying Old Potrero.

    I can get the Ritt Bib for just under $70 locally. I have seen a couple of the Old Potrero range at a place too but they were upwards of $120.

    I'm also looking forwards to the Sazerac rye that they will be bringing in too!
