Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled, aged and bottled at the most award-winning distillery in the world. Made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt. This whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years, in century old warehouses until the peak of maturity. The taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit. The smooth finish lingers on the palate. This will never change. The oldest continuously-operating distillery in the United States.
Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River. Distillation soon followed. What would become the area's distinguished bourbon heritage took root. It is here where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Signature Whiskey was produced in tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit, of the pioneers who followed them.
There has been a working distillery on the grounds since 1787. By 1886, the distillery had introduced the nation's first climate-controlled warehousing for ageing whisky and had earned a worldwide reputation for producing America's finest bourbons. During the Prohibition era, the distillery's existence was spared by the allowance of a permit, one of only four issued in the country, to continue distillation for medicinal purposes. This tradition was honoured in 1984 when the distillery became the first to commercially market a single-barrel bourbon. Also producers of the extremely rare World’s Best Bourbon, according to International Wine And Spirits Competition, Colonel E. H. Taylor Jr; which we do not currently stock unfortunately, applauded its “intense nose of bitter chocolate”.At your comfort also take a peek at our products.
