Buffalo Trace to Release 2021 Kosher Series in May

Buffalo Trace Distillery announced that its second annual release of Kosher Whiskey is set for May.

Buffalo Trace Distillery began working with the Chicago Rabbinical Council in 2010 to release what it believes is the first authentic Kosher Whiskey, according to a new release. Kosher law mandates that whiskey should not be owned or consumed by Jews during Passover. So, in 2012, the council oversaw the sale of new American Oak Kosher barrels to a non-Jewish executive, Buffalo Trace Distillery President Mark Brown, filled and put away for aging.

Like last year’s initial release, the Kosher Whiskey is available in three styles, Kosher Rye Recipe Bourbon; Kosher Wheat Recipe Bourbon; and Kosher Straight Rye Whiskey.   

Buffalo Trace bottling lines will be completely flushed before bottling to ensure the whiskey is not exposed to non-Kosher spirits; bottling will take place later in April and will be sold through wholesalers and retails until Passover begins again next year.

The whiskey release will be limited, and available for an SRP of $39.99 per 750ml bottle.
