This just in: 1933 Group (Bobby Green, Dimitri Komarov and Dmitry Liberman) has acquired an exclusive barrel of bourbon from Buffalo Trace, hand-selected during a visit to the famed distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The selection process begins when Warehouse Supervisor Ronnie Eddins pulls several barrels that make up the Buffalo Trace taste profile. According to the Buffalo Trace website, barrel selection takes place in the legendary Warehouse H, which houses all of the Blanton’s Bourbon. Samples are taken directly from the barrel for tasting; first at barrel-strength, then again after cutting the bourbon to 60 proof. After sampling, the pulled barrels are narrowed down to just one.

Precious bottles of the private barrel bourbon will be allocated to both locations of Bigfoot Lodge (Los Feliz and West) and The Thirsty Crow. The bars will feature the barrel-select Buffalo Trace in classic and signature cocktails: the Old Fashioned, Sasquatch, and the Bourberry.

Needless to say, supplies of the private barrel Buffalo Trace are extremely limited; get your sips soon before it’s all gone.
