Buffalo Trace

Buffalo Trace Distillery is located in Frankfort, Kentucky, and is owned by the Sazerac Company. Said to be the oldest continuously-operating distillery in the United States. The company says the name "Buffalo Trace" refers an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County, Kentucky. Today the Buffalo Trace names are synonymous with the finest bourbons produced, including E.H. Taylor, George T. Stagg, Albert Blanton and, of course, Elmer T. Lee.

Elmer T. Lee himself, who revolutionised the industry by re-inventing single barrel bourbons in the 1980s, celebrated his 90th birthday in August 2009 yet still hand-picks the barrels to be bottled under his name.
