A Fitting tribute to a decorated revolutionary war hero, Buckner’s 13 year, single- barrel bourbon is as complex and interesting as its namesake. A true Kentucky bourbon, This limited- release whiskey unmistakably captures your attention and rewards you from nose to finish. With exceptional balance, it honors both the spirit of adventure and the benevolence of Augusta Kentucky’s revered founder and statesman.
We created the limited run Buckner Single-Barrel Bourbon as a tribute to the lasting
accomplishments of a truly purpose-driven individual. While Captain Buckner’s battlefield
successes are well documented in history books, his civic focus and fortitude is what still
inspires five generations later.
His personal donation of 7,000 acres gave rise to the city of Augusta, Kentucky, and
spurred regional trade all along the Ohio River. He founded the city’s first school and
courthouse and served within the state’s legislature. Today, the same work ethic and
generosity can be seen in the good people of Augusta, and in the bourbon that bears
his name. Please raise your glass and join us in commemorating a true American hero.

Location : Augusta, Kentucky
Bourbon-Centric also refers to our location. Perched on a pristine stretch of the Ohio River, Augusta is within a stone’s throw of five major markets and is positioned as the natural first stop on the fabled B-Line Bourbon Trail. With easy access from two major highways and a close proximity to the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Airport, finding your way here is far from difficult.
Color: An inviting amber color is the conclusion of an intense 13-year relationship between our mash and its new American oak barrel. The warm, golden hue characterizes Buckner’s understated potency that has been deservedly earned as patience gives way to perfection.
Nose : A haunting combination of antique wood, wet soil and dry corn pulls forward from a honeyed vanilla palate. This introduction immediately suggests a rare complexity that can only be found in a true Kentucky bourbon with properly aged maturity.
Finish: Exotic spice and caramel notes are directly complimented by hints of buttery cream and cured tea leaves. Each sip provides an unforgettable experience that instantly returns you to the limestone hills of Kentucky only to demand further exploration.
