About the distillery

Buffalo Trace Distillery is a distillery located in Frankfort, Kentucky. It has historically been known by several names, including the George T. Stagg Distillery and the 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.

Located on what the company claims was once an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County, the distillery is named after the American bison. The Sazerac Company, an American family-owned producer and importer based in New Orleans, Louisiana, purchased the distillery in 1992 and is now the parent company of Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Other Information

This very rare hand-filled crystal decanter of the 23 year old is the first time the Van Winkle bourbon has been bottled at a proof other than 95.6. Hand selected 23 year old barrels from a 50 barrel selection distilled in 1986. 

This is bottled at 114 proof and presented alongside two crystal Glencairn glasses and a bottle stopper.

This is bottle number 787 of only 1200 bottles produced.
