Some of Buffalo Trace’s best Bourbon that tastes like it was poured right from cask-to-glass.

Some argue, but since the original distillery building on this site dates from 1775, most folks consider Buffalo Trace Distillery to be the oldest continually operating distillery in the US. It sits on the banks of the Ohio River in Frankfort, Kentucky, on the same 150 acres — completing 245 years of continuous operation. It even used the: "medicinal" loophole to operate during Prohibition. Now owned by Sazerac, it’s history includes a veritable Who’s-Who of historic Bourbon owners and Master Distillers who continue today to craft some of the finest and most popular Whiskey brands in America.

The George T. Stagg line of Bourbons is named after one of the most famous owners and master distillers in the Buffalo Trace lineage. And it is one of their top-line Spirits. As the name would imply, Stagg Jr. is cut from the same cloth, but a few years younger on average. Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch 8 can be hard to quantify for those same reasons. As a barrel proof, it is delivered uncut and completely unfiltered. So the ABV/proof and nuances of the flavor profile will vary from batch-to-batch. And Batch 8 is a real winner clocking in at a blistering 64.75% ABV of awesome — so we recommend a splash of water or a single cocktail cube to open things up.

It’s like cracking open a private cask in the rickhouse all for yourself.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
