E.H. Taylor MWL Single Barrel Bottle Auction for Oregon Food Bank
We are within a few thousand dollars of our goal to raise $50,000 for the Oregon Food Bank this year. What better way to raise extra funds than to give away a bottle of one of our all-time most popular private barrel selections?
We are auctioning off a bottle of the coveted Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel – MWL Selection as well as the barrel (now empty :) that this bourbon was aged in. Proceeds from the auction go to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. This is a great organization (and a great bottle of bourbon!) so put your best foot forward.
THE AUCTION WILL END ON DECEMBER 30TH AT NOON. THE WINNER CAN PICK UP THE BOTTLE AND THE BARREL AT MULTNOMAH WHISKEY LIBRARY IN PORTLAND. DELIVERY NOT AVAILABLE. About the prize:
This bottle is a one of 109 bottled for us at the Buffalo Trace distillery as part of the MWL private barrel collection. This has been an extremely popular bottling. We allocated 90 bottles to our members, and they were all claimed within a few minutes of release with over 300 people on the wait list. The accompanying barrel is the full-sized empty barrel used to age this bourbon at Buffalo Trace.
