Situated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years. Similarly, the distillery’s flagship bourbon has been made using the same process for over 2 centuries.
Buffalo Trace Straight Rye Whiskey was created in partnership with the Chicago Rabbinical Council. The partnership began in 2010 and is seeing the release of the first 3 expressions in 2020. Utilizing the same high-quality mash bill as their other straight rye whiskeys, the spirit spent 7 years in kosher barrels that were sold to a non-Jewish executive. Bottled at 94 proof and released yearly after Passover, special care is taken to ensure that the whiskey has no contact with non-kosher spirits.
