Elmer T. Lee

Hello Bourbon Aficionados!

Capital Cellars welcomes the arrival of

Elmer T. Lee

Buffalo Trace Distillery released the Elmer T. Lee commemorative bourbon edition.  Master Distiller Lee worked for Buffalo Trace for 36 years, traveled the world as a Bourbon ambassador after his retirement in 1985.   Shortly after his retirement Mr. Lee was honored with his own namesake, single barrel bourbon.  To which every week he would visit the distillery and personally hand select the barrels for his bourbon.

Sadly Elmer passed away in 2013 at the wonderful age of 93.  Buffalo Trace Distillery does it again by honoring this bourbon master with the release of a commemorative edition of the Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon at 93 proof.  Not only have they honored him with a commemorative bottle but they honor his family too.  Kris Comstock, Bourbon marketing director said “his contributions to the bourbon industry, Buffalo Trace Distillery, and all our lives are countless. We want to honor our friend and give back to his family and his favorite cause, the Veterans of Foreign Wars.”   All profits from the sale of the commemorative edition of Elmer T. Lee Bourbon will go to the local VFW Post 4075, in which he was active in until his death.

Unfortunately for Capital Cellars our quantity is limited.   We hope to see you at the store as you pick up your commemorative bottle.

Thank you~
