Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Buffalo Trace Distillery History
The McAfee brothers completed the first survey of the area north of the Kentucky River in 1773. Brothers Hancock and Willis Lee established a settlement two years later, after initial struggles and abandonment the area had developed into a thriving community by 1787.
During the prohibition era, the distillery's existence was spared by the allowance of a permit–one of only four issued in the country–to continue distillation for medicinal purposes.
