Buffalo Trace Distillery, located in Frankfort, Kentucky, is among the leading brands of fine bourbon whiskey. It has historically been known by several names, including most notably, the George T. Stagg Distillery and the O.F.C. Distillery. Its namesake bourbon brand, Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey, was introduced in August 1999.
The company claims the distillery to be the oldest continuously operating distillery in the United States. During Prohibition, the distillery was allowed to remain operational, in order to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes". Buffalo Trace is made from corn, rye, and barley malt, and aged in charred oak barrels. Approximately 25–30 barrels are selected and mixed before bottling. It has won several awards since its introduction. While Buffalo Trace Distillery is mainly known for its bourbon, it also produces other spirits such as rye whiskey
