Elmer T Lee 100 Year Tribute. 100 Year Tribute is a commemorative bottling honoring what would have been the 100th birthday of Elmer T. Lee, former master distiller emeritus for Buffalo Trace Distillery. This 100 Year Tribute is still a single barrel bourbon and is made using the same mash bill and age as its standard Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon, but it is bottled at 100 proof rather than 90 proof. Proceeds from this limited edition bottling will go to the Frankfort VFW Post 4075 where Lee was a member until his death in 2013. Available August 2019 while supplies last.
This single-barrel expression is named in honor of Elmer T. Lee, former Master Distiller of Buffalo Trace Distillery who was their Ambassador for years after his retirement in 1985. Just before his retirement, he introduced the world to single barrel bourbon with the release of Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon named in honor of the gentleman who hired him back in 1949.
