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.
You’ve probably heard the term “White Dog”. It was what America’s first explorers used to call unaged whiskey, drunk right off the still before the liquid was found to be perfect for aging in barrels, later becoming Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Crafted from a high-corn mash bill, it’s clear with hints of sweet corn. This moonshine’s cousin pays tribute to distill tradition and is bottled at 125 proof.
