Natural treasures like limestone and water are some of the reasons why Kentucky remains the world’s biggest bourbon producer. Another reason is the early Scottish and German settlers of America’s original west that brought over their stills and distilling know-how. Blanton’s to praise for the ‘invention’ of the single barrel bourbon in 1984. Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee drew the inspiration for creating a top-quality bourbon from the knowledge of Colonel Blanton, ‘a true Kentucky gentleman and bourbon aristocrat’, with whom he worked at the start of his career. Lee remembered the ‘honey barrels’ that Blanton hand-picked for a particular company from the center of the now-iconic Warehouse H and bottled a barrel at a time. That’s also how this liquor got its name ‘Blanton’s Single Barrel .’ The whole industry got revolutionized. See, before Elmer T. Lee’ Master Distiller Emeritus and Ambassador for Buffalo Trace Distillery’ had this reforming idea: there was no super-premium bourbon.
