Built in 1872 and located in Frankfort, Kentucky, the Buffalo Trace distillery is the most awarded distillery in the world and is one of the oldest distilleries in the United States. Originally known as "Old Fire Copper", then renamed by George T. Stagg 1904, it was one of four distilleries in the United States authorized to produce whiskey for medicinal purposes during Prohibition. Renamed Buffalo Trace in 1999, it has been named distillery of the year 7 times since the 2000s and distiller of the year 3 times. It produces high quality bourbons and rye recognized throughout the world such as Blanton's, Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Sazerac. It is also known to collectors for its Antique Collection range which brings together rare bottlings once a year such as; Grandpa van Winkle, W.L. Weller, G.T. Stagg.
The first bourbon to be bottled barrel by barrel (single barrel) in 1983, Blanton's revolutionized American whiskey. This straight bourbon bears the name of Colonel Blanton who ran the distillery in 1921. The creator of Blanton's was inspired by his predecessor, taking advantage of the abandonment of the principle of barrel rotation so that each barrel acquires a unique aromatic profile. Blanton's thus offers a precise and gourmet register of cereals, spices, candied fruits, citrus fruits and flowers in its different expressions.
