Buffalo Trace Bourbon teams up with The Cut Barbershop & Red Lantern for limited-edition Buffalo, Beards & BBQ collab!
Red Lantern and The Cut Barbershop have teamed up with critically acclaimed Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey to get Sydneysiders ready for their return to post-lockdown life, with a fresh grooming, celebratory cocktail and a bourbon-infused bite.
For two weekends only from Thursday, 4 November, Mark Jensen from The Cut will be opening up a limited number of chairs at the 20-year-old barbershop for Sydneysiders to get a fresh beard trim or haircut (or both for $50), whilst sipping on an award-winning Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey. Located at the rear of Red Lantern, Mark’s unique vision is a culmination of the gentlemen’s collective, combined with contemporary South-East Asian dining under the same roof.
A fresh shave won’t be the only thing on offer as Red Lantern will be serving up a celebratory bourbon cocktail, ‘The Xich Lo Sour’ (Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Sichuan pepper syrup, chilli & lemon, shaken over ice), paired with a loaded Asian-spiced pulled beef brisket sandwich, topped with pickles and a Buffalo Trace-infused hot sauce to be devoured in the comfort of your barber’s chair. Buffalo Trace Bourbon is featured throughout the meal to ensure the smoky brisket enhances the rich notes of vanilla, toffee and molasses of the bourbon.
Lacing Buffalo Trace Bourbon throughout the menu allows for the flavour to stand out when mixed into a cocktail or alongside a perfectly barbequed dish. The Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is carefully crafted by the world’s most awarded distillery, with hundreds of national and international accolades. Each batch is carefully matured in century-old warehouses where it ages longer than most other bourbons, providing a smooth finish with some serious depth as you take each sip.
For those hungry for the full bourbon and barber experience, the whole package will include the Buffalo Trace Xich Lo Sour Cocktail and pulled brisket sandwich with your grooming service of choice for $75. All visitors to The Cut for the next two weekends, will also be gifted with a complimentary mini bottle of Buffalo Trace Bourbon and a Fever-Tree Smoky Ginger Ale to enjoy at home.
If customers find themselves longing for more, they can go for the full Buffalo Trace experience and pick up a 700ml bottle of Buffalo Trace Bourbon for an extra $50 from The Cut.
Sydneysiders will need to make their bookings prior, with a prepayment of their grooming service and food via The Cut’s website at https://bit.ly/3nkedsi (promo appears from 4th Nov).A limited number of sandwiches and extra bottles of Buffalo Trace will also be available to purchase on the day from The Cut for those who weren’t able to secure a trim spot.
The Buffalo, Beards N’ BBQ offer will be available from 4th to 7th November from 12pm–5pm every day and 11th to 14th November from 12pm–5pm every day at The Cut Barbershop. Address: Crown Ln, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Publisher’s tasting note:
After being locked down, I couldn’t think of a better grooming experience than this! The pulled beef brisket sandwich is packed full of flavour and textural counterpoints – apart from being just damn delicious. Pair that perfectly with a smooth Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey, or ‘The Xich Lo Sour’ cocktail, and the new normal is off to a memorable start. The well-balanced Fever-Tree Smoky Ginger Ale is thrown in to enjoy at home, so make sure you don’t miss out, and book a culinary inspired cut whilst spots are still available.
