If you're a fan of a little cream in your coffee, allow us to suggest one of the Kentucky variety to replace that overseas option. Rich, decadent, balanced... this sweet elixir has a lot of bourbon character to match its creamy intensity. Go ahead, give it a whirl - no one will know it's not just coffee in that mug.
To appreciate the full history of Buffalo Trace distillery is a daunting task. It is a brand and place that has produced legendary whiskey for generations, and was helmed by some of the biggest icons in American distilling. George T. Stagg bought the O.F.C. distillery from Colonel E. H. Taylor in 1878, and together the two men built the company into a distilling behemoth, taking its business to unseen levels in the industry. In 1904 the distillery was renamed and now donned the moniker of its owner and brightest star. Throughout the 20th century, the distillery saw a number of changes. Prohibition came and went (GTS was one of a few distilleries permitted to produce whiskey "for medicinal purposes" during this troubling time.) The distillery changed hands a couple of times throughout the decades, and finally landed in the hands of the family behind the Sazerac Company in 1992. Along the way they introduced the first single barrel bourbon, named for Albert Blanton who followed in the footsteps of Masters Taylor and Stagg. The company rechristened themselves Buffalo Trace Distillery in 1999 and have been on a tear ever since. With the Sazerac company leading the charge Buffalo Trace is responsible for releasing the most sought after American whiskey year after year.
