Buffalo Trace Distillery
In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway that was followed by America’s early pioneers. On the spot where the buffalo migration route crossed the Kentucky River, we’ve been making legendary bourbon whiskey for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. During Prohibition the distillery was even permitted to remain operational, to make whiskey for “medicinal purposes”. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them westward, we created Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Within the past decade, Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the world, including an unmatched seven “Distillery of the Year” titles. Still American family owned and located in Franklin County, Kentucky, the distillery’s rich history includes such legendary distillers as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp and Elmer T. Lee. The distillery sprawls impressively over 130 acres and is home to four centuries of architecture – all still fully operational.
Barton 1792 Distillery
History The Barton 1792 Distillery operates on the site of the historic Tom Moore Distillery, established in 1879 near the “Tom Moore Spring”, the same spring we draw our iron-free limestone water from today. The 192-acre American family owned distillery is home to beautiful wildlife and many historic buildings, including our still house and 28 aging warehouses. The legendary ‘Warehouse Z’ stands tall on the western bluff enjoying full summer sun and optimal air-circulation for aging bourbon whiskey. It is in this warehouse that 1792 Small Batch ages to the peak of maturity
