Buffalo Trace Bourbon Distillery Tour

The Bourbon is crafted in the time-honored tradition unique to Bourbon starting with the Kentucky and Indiana corn, selected rye from and superior malted barley from North and South Dakota and Minnesota. Together these grains represent the unique mash bill a trade secret known only by those craftsmen responsible for producing this Bourbon whiskey. When the grain is delivered to the distillery, it undergoes a series of evaluations, including a general visual inspection for any obvious abnormalities. Bushel weight is then checked to ensure that the grain demonstrates the proper baseline characteristics. Finally a sample of the grain is tested in the distillery laboratory to determine if it meets their standards for moisture levels and chemical balance.
