Join us for a tour of the Buffalo Trace Distillery located in the rustic setting of the 1800’s, producing the best collection of bourbons and whiskies. The distillery located in Frankfort, KY, is listed on the US National Historic Landmark registry and provides employees, customers, tourists, and business travelers with a unique, enriching experience not found at any other distillery in the world.
Tour #1 – Distillery Tour
Walk amidst the path of rolling barrels and you will be captivated by the alluring smell and atmosphere of bourbon sleeping inside the aging warehouses. You will tour the renowned Blanton’s Bottling Hall where you will see signature bourbons being filled, sealed, labeled, and packaged – all by hand.
Tour #2 – Distribution Center Tour
The DC tour will review the basic supply chain processes for spirits products, planning, bottling, storage, and distribution facility. We will finish up with the evolution of the finished goods distribution including the viewing of their latest innovation, an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS).
