This flagship Bourbon has history in every sip.

There has been Whiskey made on the site of the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, for more than two hundred years. The first distillery operation that can be continuously traced to Buffalo Trace was started in 1812 by Harrison Blanton (yes, that Blanton). He sold the operation in 1870 and it was renamed the Old Fire Copper (O. F. C.) Distillery. It has been bought and sold many times over the intervening decades, but Sazerac has owned the property since 1992. They produce a wide range of Bourbons and spirits — including their signature Bourbon.

Not only is the Buffalo Trace signature Bourbon beloved by its fans, it’s also really good and not overly-priced. In fact, it has become the flagship of the Sazerac Bourbon line-up. They keep the mash bill tight — Corn, Rye, and malted Barley with no Wheat filler. It is also aged at least 8 years and served up at 45% ABV. All that means rich, classic Bourbon flavor in every sip. For many Bourbon fans, Buffalo Trace is their “go-to” daily drinker and we think it would be hard to make a better choice.

Smartass Corner:
Buffalo Trace 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).

David
David,
What can I say that isn't already obvious by the lack of availability of this great bourbon. I only wish that everyone wasn't so crazy about BT products now days. This is simply a great bourbon at a great price. Anytime our local stores have it, we're limited to one bottle purchased at a time. Sounds like it is more available in some parts of the country, but not the southeast. Perhaps there are two many of us bourbon drinkers here!
 
Tim
Tim,
“What’s a good Bourbon that’s priced reasonably and easy to find anywhere?” Buffalo Trace While taste is obviously subjective and everyone prefers different things, I have never spoken to a whiskey drinker who had anything bad to say about Buffalo Trace. That being said, it takes no risks so it’s a safe bet which is both its strength and it’s weakness. Cheers
