Eagle Rare is a historic bourbon brand and is one of the five bourbons included in the award-winning Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. Buffalo Trace's parent company, Sazerac, purchased the Eagle Rare brand from Seagram in 1989, who had developed it in the 1970s to replicate what it felt where the successful motifs used by the Wild Turkey brand. Production of the label was moved to Buffalo Trace when Sazerac acquired the facility in 1992 (then known as Ancient Age).
Released in 2019, this Kentucky straight bourbon is named for the length of its age which at 20 years is double that of the standard Eagle Rare expression. Presented in a stunning decanter which includes two crystal eagles, one inside the bottle and one as the bottle stopper.
