The bar, located in an ageing warehouse above Shoreditch Station, will feature a path of rolling bourbon barrels, with the aim of transporting guests to the Buffalo Trace Distillery and absorbing its scents and atmosphere. Cocktail making sessions will be on offer, alongside a masterclass educating guests about the variety of Buffalo Trace's whiskeys, as well as bar stool sessions and the chance to watch comedy duo 'The Thinking Drinkers'. 

Visitors will also have the opportunity to be among the first to sample this year’s highly anticipated Antique Collection – a range of five whiskeys that has received some of the highest accolades the spirits world has to offer.

Buffalo Bourbon Empire runs from 5-10 October. The pop-up featured at last year's LCW event. 

In the summer, Buffalo Trace hosted a pop-up film festival for the Edinburgh Fringe. The 'High Nooon Theatre & Saloon' screened a range of classic Western movies. 

Chivas Regal is hosting a whisky bar focusing on the art of blending, which will debut at LCW with other dates throughout October.
