Meanwhile, Casey’s and Buffalo Trace are bringing back Buffalo Trace Single Barrel Select and adding Myer’s Rum Single Barrel Select.
This year, in conjunction with its Buffalo Trace Distillery Single Barrel Select program, Casey’s is adding a Myers’s Rum Single Barrel Select program in certain markets. Buffalo Trace will be available at select Casey’s stores in Iowa and Missouri in February, and Myers’s Rum will be available in 90 stores in Illinois in January.
The Myers’s Single Barrel Rum series finishes a traditional Jamaican rum in barrels previously used by other iconic Sazerac brands. The inaugural release has been carefully finished in hand-selected American oak barrels previously used for aging Sazerac Rye whisky. The result delivers a pleasantly spicy rye finish to the balanced rum, showcasing the impact aging techniques imbues on flavor.
“After last year’s successful launch of our Buffalo Trace Barrel Select Buffalo Trace program, we are excited to bring a new brand to our Single Barrel program with a Myers’s Single Barrel Select Rum. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with a great partner like Sazerac to bring these unique offerings to Casey’s guests,” said Eric Long, director of packaged beverages for Casey’s.
