Buffalo Trace Distillery is a distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, owned by the Sazerac Company. It has historically been known by several names, including the George T. Stagg Distillery and the Old Fashioned Copper (O.F.C.) Distillery. Its namesake bourbon brand, Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey, was introduced in August 1999. The company claims the distillery is the oldest continuously-operating distillery in the United States. The company says the name "Buffalo Trace" refers to an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County, Kentucky.
While this distillery is not on the bourbon trail, I wanted to visit and check out this amazing distillery. So while in Frankfort, Kentucky for a bit I headed over to check the place out. I have drank many a bourbon that came from this place, so it definitely seemed worthy to visit and check out. It was a beautiful and old distillery, so well kept and manicured. Definitely worth the visit.
I hope everyone enjoys the pictures.
