Buffalo Trace Distillery Description

The Buffalo Trace Distillery bills itself as the oldest continuously operating distillery in the United States, but this claim has been disputed. What is not in dispute however, is the fact that Whiskey has been made on this site in Frankfort, Kentucky — on the banks of the Kentucky River — for over two hundred years.
The first distillery operation that can be continuously linked to Buffalo Trace, was started in 1812, by Harrison Blanton. He sold the operation in 1870, and renamed it Old Fire Copper (O. F. C.) Distillery.
Like so many others, it has been bought and sold many times over the decades, but Sazerac has owned the property since 1992.
The facility has a capacity of about 2.7 million gallons per year — enough to fill about 51,000 barrels. This is especially impressive, since everything passes through a single, 60,000 gallon beer still (wash type). This production flows into some fourteen Bourbons, a handful of Whiskeys, and a Vodka.
