Buffalo Trace Distillery Releases Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon

New Release is a 20-Year-Old Bourbon in a Custom Crystal Decanter

FRANKFORT, FRANKLIN COUNTY, KY (Feb 6, 2019) – Fans of Eagle Rare Bourbon Whiskey are in for an unexpected treat, as Buffalo Trace Distillery announces the release of an ultra-rare, 20-year-old bourbon called Double Eagle Very Rare.

A luxurious crystal decanter and silver presentation box accompany this limited edition whiskey that has a name with double meaning. The 20-year-old bourbon matured twice as long as the standard Eagle Rare 10-year-old bourbon and the Double Eagle decanter features two beautifully sculptured crystal glass eagles, one inside the bottle, and one serving as the stopper.

The presentation box consists of two sliding doors, imprinted with a design reminiscent of eagle feathers. Sliding open the doors triggers spotlights above and below the bottle, to reveal the beautiful hand blown crystal decanter. Only 299 of these special bottles were produced. An individually numbered letter of authenticity is included with each.

“We’ve been waiting for this whiskey to mature for years. Even after two decades, these barrel are surprisingly balanced. Hints of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel lead to a gracefully aged oaky flavor,” said Kris Comstock, senior marketing director for Eagle Rare.   “We worked on the packaging for more than two years, and finally settled on what we think is a beautiful decanter inside an eye catching, yet tastefully decorated box.  Something that anyone would be proud to display on their bar. And it tastes even better than it looks.”

The suggested retail pricing for Double Eagle Very Rare is $1,999. The next release of this 90 proof whiskey will be spring 2020.
