OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Proxibid, the most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued items, has been selected by Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha (RMHC in Omaha) to provide online bidding for the auction of a rare and collectible vintage bottle of bourbon. The Buffalo Trace Distillery O.F.C. vintage-dated 1983 bottle will be available for bidding exclusively on Proxibid beginning Thursday, February 16 and ending Thursday, February 23, with all proceeds benefitting RMHC in Omaha.
Buffalo Trace Distillery distilled only 50 bottles of O.F.C. Bourbon in 1983. Aged in oak barrels and packaged in a hand-cut crystal bottle with the year engraved, this very rare and collectible bourbon honors the O.F.C. Distillery, a National Historic Landmark known today as Buffalo Trace Distillery. Buffalo Trace Distillery has graciously partnered with non-profit organizations across the country to provide these rare bottles as fundraising opportunities. The bottle up for bid in this auction is #4 of 50.
“These vintages are certainly unique and special whiskeys. We hope this O.F.C. collection can pay tribute to the many years gone by here at the Distillery. Each vintage has a story to tell indeed,” stated Kris Comstock from Buffalo Trace Distillery. “To offer this first release to charitable organizations for their fundraising efforts makes this even more rewarding. We expect bottles to raise upwards of $10,000 each for worthy causes.”
