In a press release today (02/27/2020) from Buffalo Trace Distillery, it was announced that the coveted Blanton’s Gold will soon be available in the US.

According to the press release, “Fans of Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon have long asked for the Gold Edition to be available in the United States. This summer those bourbon lovers will get their wish. Available as a limited release in 2020, Blanton’s Gold will be released once every year in the U.S.”

The 103 proof Blanton’s Gold Edition is the same recipe as Blanton’s Original, but the proof is greater.  The bottle showcases a horse and jockey atop its stopper, in various poses to mimic running a horse race. The eight different horse and jockey stoppers feature a letter that collectors save to spell out the brand name “B-L-A-N-T-O-N-S.”  The horse and jockey on the Gold Edition is gold in color.

Here at The Bourbon Road, we are pretty excited about this new announcement. While your’e here, take time to check out our podcast about bourbon, the culture and the people who enjoy it.
