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 bottle of 16 year old Stitzel-Weller Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, Twisted Spoke, was a one-off single barrel bourbon bottled by Julian Van Winkle in 1999 for the Twisted Spoke Bar in Chicago. Bottled at 105 proof.
