Buffalo Trace Kosher Rye Recipe Bourbon Whiskey
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. Similarly, the distillery’s flagship bourbon has been made using the same process for over 2 centuries.
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of yellow #2 dent corn, plump rye grains and malted barley, which is cooked and cooled before being fermented for approximately 3-5 days.
Once fermentation is complete, the bourbon is double-distilled through column stills before being aged in first-fill, American oak barrels (90% of the distillery’s oak is brought in from the Ozark Mountains) that have been aged for six months in the distillery’s yard before being heavily charred.
Created in partnership with the Chicago Rabbinical Council, Buffalo Trace Kosher Rye Recipe is a bourbon whiskey in a Kosher version. The partnership began in 2010 and is seeing the release of the first 3 expressions in 2020. Utilizing the same high-quality grains as their Bourbon Whiskey, the spirit is aged in kosher barrels for 7 years, then bottled at 94 proof. Special care is taken to ensure that the whiskey has no contact with non-kosher spirits. The Rye Recipe Bourbon is released yearly after Passover.
