They’ve been open since 1792, which makes them only a few years younger than the United States itself. They were even allowed to remain open during Prohibition, so they could continue making their whiskey for medicinal purposes.

Some of their most famous brand names are the eponymous Buffalo Trace Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, and Pappy Van Winkle’s.
