We created the limited run Buckner Single-Barrel Bourbon as a tribute to the lasting accomplishments of a truly purpose-driven individual. While Captain Buckner’s battlefield successes are well documented in history books, his civic focus and fortitude is what still inspires five generations later.

His personal donation of 7,000 acres gave rise to the city of Augusta, Kentucky, and spurred regional trade all along the Ohio River. He founded the city’s first school and courthouse and served within the state’s legislature. Today, the same work ethic and generosity can be seen in the good people of Augusta, and in the bourbon that bears his name. Please raise your glass and join us in commemorating a true American hero.
