Buffalo Trace has released a line of Bourbons under the name of O.F.C. Distillery.  This limited release has initially only been made available to non-profits at zero cost so that funds can be raised for important causes. The name O.F.C. Distillery will always be tied to Buffalo Trace Distillery, thanks to Edmund H. Taylor, who was also known as Colonel E.H. Taylor.  Taylor named the property Old Fire Copper Distillery in 1870 when he purchased the site that Buffalo Trace resides on today.
