The Buffalo Trace Oral History Project is the first project in the Bourbon in Kentucky Oral History Project series that documents the memories and stories of members of the Buffalo Trace Distillery family. This project, developed by the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries, is designed to preserve the story of the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. In addition to producing award-winning bourbon, the oldest known, continuously operated distillery in the country has a remarkably rich history.
The project features the people and stories of the Buffalo Trace family, such as Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee and descendents of iconic figures like Col. Albert Blanton, Col. E.H. Taylor, and Pappy Van Winkle. We are given an insider’s look at life in the distillery and how world-class bourbon is made.
