BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY BUFFALO HEAD TROPHY draft tap handle. Pouring some of Americas finest spirits with this beautiful, rare piece. This distillery started out as The Old Fire Copper Distillery in the 1800′s. Surviving a catastrophic lightning strike, devastating flood, prohibition and constant rivalries from various competitors. It is the oldest bourbon distillery in America. It even stayed active during prohibition to provide alcohol for medicinal purposes. Their bourbon is made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt; then aged in new oak barrels. That’s 90 proof! Taste is rich and complex with notes of vanilla, toffee, candied fruit and oak. This handle is new. Excellent condition as seen. Comes in original factory box. Professionally fitted with a new wood extension to make it easier to display. The handle is a tribute to the mighty American buffalo that roamed the plains by the thousands many years ago. Paving the way to the Kentucky River banks where they have been making bourbon whiskey for over 200 years. Strong, independent and rugged tough. Buffalo facts: This is a bison. Found in North America and Europe. Buffalos usually roam in Asia and Africa having no beard and much larger horns. Known as water buffalo and Cape buffalo you have seen on wildlife shows. Looking more like an angry bull cow. Really nice piece that will stand out like a trophy in your collection for sure. Stands about 8-1/2 inches tall. Very hard to find this one.
