    Buffalo Trace Distillery UPCs

    Buffalo Trace Distillery products carry two different UPC numbers, 80244 and 88004. Is there any rhyme or reason which products get which UPC code? I thought BT and ER start out as the same juice, but they carry different UPCs.

    Here is what is in my cabinet:

    80244

    Buffalo Trace
    Rock Hill Farms
    Blanton's

    88004

    Wellers
    Stagg Jr
    ER10
    EHTSmlB
    Thomas Handy Antique
    wLw Antique
    Stagg Antique

    I don't know the answer, but clearly it has nothing to do with mashbill, as you have both high and low rye recipes under the first UPC, and at least 3 different mashbills under the second UPC.

    Re: Buffalo Trace Distillery UPCs

    But for the glaring exception of the flagship (plain old BT KSBW itself), it seems 80244 is reserved for Age Int'l brands (distilled by BT for a separate owner), while 88004 is for brands owned by BT. My own cabinet reflects this, too: 88004 for BTEC, BTAC, BT SOP, Wellers, old-ish Benchmark, OOP OC 12/90; but 80244 for AAA 10y, dusty AA, old Hancock's, old Blanton's, ETL ... but also my BT Buffalo Cream. Why BT KSBW and Cream are 80244 is beyond me.
