Buffalo Trace Distillery Hosting $10,000 Value Sweeps – “Bourbon Experience of A Lifetime”


Buffalo Trace Distillery (BTD) is jumping into 2023, full guns uh blazing! Well, running if you will. We’ll get to that.

They have recently announced the chance to “Win The Bourbon Experience of a Lifetime”. We agree wholeheartedly, it is precisely that. Part of the grand prize is a night’s stay at the NEVER BEFORE open to the public Stagg Lodge (on BTD grounds,)! WARNING: Stagg Lodge sits stoically on a bluff with stunning views overlooking BTD.

The iconic Frankfort, KY, based whiskey maker celebrated filling its 8th million barrel (post Prohibition) in Dec 2022. This sweeps is part of the grandeur for celebrating the special milestone.

HOW TO ENTER? (Ends Feb 18th)

Entering is easy. There’s just one ask – that you run (walk, jog, pogo, whatever) a mile in honor of Bourbon. That’s not too bad, we can handle that. You will be asked if you accomplished this task, and its honor system. Soooo…

“The passion we see from our fans is the most inspiring part of what we do,” said Harlen Wheatley, master distiller. “We’re asking people to run just one mile for a chance to join us at Buffalo Trace Distillery for a specially curated bourbon experience, and the opportunity to stock their bars with an exclusive collection of some of our finest bourbons for the new year and beyond.”

“There’s running … and then there’s running with the goal of bourbon,” said Freddie Johnson, third generation team member and distillery VIP Visitor Lead. “We’ve pulled out all the stops to plan this immersive and exclusive experience for one special bourbon fan.”
