Our Vision

Crafting the Perfect Bourbon

For more than 25 years, Buffalo Trace Distillery has been conducting whiskey experiments by exploring such variables as unique mash bills, barrel char levels and types of wood – we are bound only by the ideas we have not thought of yet.

"We push the envelope here at Buffalo Trace. We have crazy ideas and aren't afraid to try them. The possibilities for bourbon here are endless."
                                                                                                        — Harlen Wheatley, Master Distiller

Now we’re taking our “out of the barrel” thinking one step further with the construction of a one-of-a-kind experimental warehouse, called Warehouse X. Custom built with four distinct chambers, Warehouse X allows us to take our experimentation to the next level.

All of this is part of our quest to make the perfect bourbon, our search for the “Holy Grail.” One day industry experts will agree, but so far the perfect bourbon has yet to be made. So join us now as we go on our journey to discover it.
