The “100 Bourbon Sets for 100 Charities” initiative is a testament to Buffalo Trace Distillery’s commitment to honoring Colonel Taylor’s legacy. This initiative, first announced in September 2023, involved inviting nonprofit organizations nationwide to apply for a chance to receive a set of the Distillery’s finest whiskeys for charitable fundraising. Selected organizations, like KTW, demonstrate a steadfast commitment to community improvement, reflecting the principles that guided Colonel Taylor’s advocacy for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897.
