If its first bottle of bourbon sold is any indication, Boundary Oak Distillery has a bright future ahead.
The Elizabethtown distillery said an online auction for its first bottle fetched $28,050, including an auction fee of $2,550, the Associated Press reports. All of the funds will go to a local charity.
The pricey bottle might even have set a record: “We don’t know of any other bottle that sold for that amount or higher,” said Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association.
The winning bidder, who is from Hardin County and wants to remain anonymous, will have a little bit of a wait for the bottle. The distillery will fill its first bourbon barrel in December and the whiskey will age for two years before it’s bottled, the story said.
As Business First previously reported, the distillery launched its bourbon brand on Nov. 13.
