Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years. Similarly, the distillery’s flagship bourbon has been made using the same process for over 2 centuries.

Created in partnership with the Chicago Rabbinical Council, Buffalo Trace Kosher Rye Recipe is a bourbon whiskey in a Kosher version. The partnership began in 2010 and is seeing the release of the first 3 expressions in 2020. Utilizing the same high-quality grains as their Bourbon Whiskey, the spirit is aged in kosher barrels for 7 years, then bottled at 94 proof. Special care is taken to ensure that the whiskey has no contact with non-kosher spirits. The Rye Recipe Bourbon is released yearly after Passover.

The oldest continuously operating distillery in America also happens to have one of the largest families of homegrown brands in any industry. Led by our namesake and flagship brand, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, the line includes several brands, collections and expressions that have earned some of the highest accolades the industry offers.

From the Van Winkle collection to Benchmark, from O.F.C. Vintages to Freddie’s Old Fashioned Soda—the Buffalo Trace Distillery family of brands is at once a tribute to tradition and thoughtful experimentation.  

Wind your way through the Rickhouse of information to the left to learn about the original wheated bourbon, the world’s first single barrel bourbon, gold medal collections of expressions, limited edition offerings and other byproducts of the centuries of whiskey innovation at Buffalo Trace Distillery.
