Eventbrite - Live Auction Benefiting Sunflower Kids

Here's a preview of some of the outstanding items that will be available during the live auction.

Buffalo Trace Barrel Select 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an individual or a group of friends!   Join Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley as a VIP guest on Buffalo Trace’s distillery grounds to hand-select your very own barrel of premium bourbon!  Harlen will offer you bourbon samples taken directly from four barrels.  Tasting is done at barrel strength and then again at 60 proof, allowing the product’s natural aromas and flavors to come through.  Once you choose your bourbon, the barrel is set aside and prepared for bottling.  Each bottle will have a custom sticker letting everyone know it was specially selected!  And you get to keep the barrel!  

Bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year 
Pappy Van Winkle 20 year is now one of the rarest, most expensive, and most sought after bourbons. Considered by many to be the world’s finest bourbon, this blend has been given a 99 out of 100 rating by the World Spirits Championship. This bourbon is aged 20 years and bottled at 90.4 proof for a wonderfully smooth and rich profile.
