Sazerac Company, proud owner of some of the most venerable distilling companies-Buffalo Trace Distillery, A. Smith Bowman, Glenmore Distillery, Barton, Fleischman, Medley and Mr. Boston-has made it possible for Sky Ranch Foundation℠ to help continue in our efforts to award grants to deserving organizations which help rehabilitate at-risk youth.

Standing today as the oldest continuously operating distillery in America, Buffalo Trace Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, has been making whisky for more than 200 years, all great bourbons including Blanton’s, Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, George T. Stagg, William Larue Weller.

Recently released and limited to only 200 bottles, the ultra-rare O.F.C. Vintage Bourbons were given to a select few charity institutions for their use in fundraising. Sky Ranch Foundation℠ was the benefactor of the O.F.C. 1982 Vintage bottle. Their donation earned the Foundation in excess of $5,700.

George McCarthy, Foundation Chairman and Ralph Aguera, Foundation President agree, “The Foundation appreciates the support we received from Sazerac Company and wish them great success with their newest release. Funds raised will go a long way to furthering the Foundation’s efforts.”
