Buffalo Trace Fermenter

This week, the Buffalo Trace distillery filled a fermenter dating back to 1883 with Old Fashioned Sour Mash for the first time in more than 100 years.

The fermenting vat, which is one of Bourbon industry innovator Colonel EH Taylor Junior’s original fermenters, was discovered while the American whisky brand was renovating event space at its distillery.

The fermenter has been recommissioned with the help of a Bourbon archeologist and will now be used to produce Old Fashioned Sour Mash, similar to how Taylor did nearly 150 years ago.
