Although the name "Buffalo Trace" is relatively new, the distillery site in Frankfort, Kentucky has a heritage that reaches back to the late 1700s. Known for most of the last century as George T. Stagg Distillery, Buffalo Trace currently produces 17 different whiskey product lines including Blanton's, Eagle Rare and Van Winkle among others.
