Buffalo Trace / O.F.C. Distillery (1812-present)
The Buffalo Trace Distillery is on the U.S. Register of Historic Places and it is a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Walking around this complex you can see and feel the history – and it is not a museum. It is an active, working distillery that has been continuously distilling liquor for over 200 years – even through the prohibition years. Not only does it have a real, gritty industrial feel, you can also feel the employee and family’s involvement and presence in the distillery.
I went on the National Historic Landmark Tour of this distillery. Click HERE for additional photos and description of the history of this famous distillery.
