Item Description

Buffalo Trace Distillery is a historic producer located in Frankfort, Kentucky. It has been known by several names over the course of its history, but claims to be the oldest continuously operating distillery in the United States, with records going back to 1775 and the oldest building dating from 1792.

During Prohibition, Buffalo Trace was allowed to stay open to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes". The Sazerac Company of New Orleans bought the company in 1992.

The Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon whiskey was introduced in 1999, when the distillery changed its name from George T. Stagg, although this name survives in a straight Bourbon still made at the facility.

The distillery makes a number of other products, including Col. E.H. Taylor, Ancient Age and Wheatley's Vodka. Sazerac Rye, Blanton's, Old Rip van Winkle and W.L. Weller are some of the best-known brands that originate from the distillery, but are distributed via Sazerac or other associated companies.

With such a varied portfolio there is, unsurprisingly, a varied selection of stills of all shapes and sizes, and there are 75 different locations within the site where barrels are aged.

The distillery has been named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine three times, most recently in 2022.
