|Buffalo Trace Distillery – Frankfort, Ky.|
A few months ago, I was lucky enough to attend a wedding at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, (allegedly) the oldest operating distillery site in the country. Located in Frankfort, the site is on the National Historic Register as the George T. Stagg Distillery. Distilling began on this site sometime before 1773, on the site of an old trail (the Alanant-O-Wamiowee) where Buffalo reportedly crossed the Kentucky River. These Buffalo trails or “Buffalo Trace” were used by early pioneers.
