Sazerac and Thomas H Handy, are both part of the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
Based in Kentucky, Buffalo Trace released the Thomas H Handy as part of their Antique Collection in 2006.
The Sazerac name traces its roots to the purchase of a bar by Thomas H. Handy in 1869 and symbolises the tradition and history of New Orleans.
The coffee house was known throughout Prohibition as the Sazerac Coffee House after a cocktail The Sazerac, the first and only branded American cocktail. Created by a Creole immigrant called Antoine Peychaud, who owned a pharmacy on the French Quarter’s Royal St, it was originally made with Cognac and Peychaud’s Bitters, but as brandy became hard to import the recipe switched to a Kentucky Rye Whiskey.
