Situated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
Bourbon Cream is a liqueur based on their Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The handcrafted, small-batch drink is an exquisite clash of two worlds ― that of smooth bourbon and rich cream. It has won a plethora of awards, some of the more recent ones including a Silver Medal at the 2019 New York World Spirits Competition as well as a Bronze Medal at the 2020 edition of San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Try it on its own, with some coffee, or with a generous splash or two of root beer for a delicious adult version of a root beer float.
