Bourbon: Producer Capsules

Buffalo Trace

Distilling at what is now Buffalo Trace in Frankfort probably began in the 1850’s, but Edmund Haynes Taylor (yes, there’s an E.H. Taylor line) bought whatever was there and renamed it the “Old Fire Copper” distillery (OFC) in 1870. After an 1872 expansion, George T. Stagg (yep, there’s a BT label named after him as well) bought the place in 1878 only to have it struck by lightning and burn to the ground merely four years later. The 16 year old Albert Blanton (you guessed it – more whiskey named for him) started there in 1897 and was promoted to Superintendent in 1900. As Prohibition was winding down, the Schenley company bought the distillery, now named after Mr. Stagg in the wave of consolidation that saw distributors and marketers own distilleries.

In 1983, the plant was sold to some investors who were focused on the Japanese market under the name Age International. Though other companies will argue this point, what is now these investors did come up with Blanton’s. the first “single barrel” Bourbon in 1984.

    It's okay but basically just tastes like the ingredients rather than a carefully balanced cocktail.

  • Re The Bloodborne of Beverages, 1 day 17 hours ago M.grandiflora commented:

    Love everything about this drink. Perfectly balanced.

  • Re The Cableknit, 2 days 10 hours ago jensck commented:

    Seriously strange. Maybe it's because I used a different coffee liqueur (Tempus Fugit), but I'm not sure these flavors work together.

  • Re String Theory, 2 days 12 hours ago stirred commented:

    Good winter vibes. Same vein as Left Hand and Black Lodge. Add to rotation.

  • Re Last Word, 3 days ago Craig E commented:

    Abigail Gullo makes a Last Laugh by straining this into a champagne flute and topping with cava, with a lime twist.
