Bourbon has been enjoyed for centuries, but single barrel bourbon only dates back to 1984 when the owners of the Ancient Age Distillery (now Buffalo Trace Distillery) set out to create a product of the highest quality. In doing so, they revolutionized the industry.

The inspiration? Colonel Albert Blanton, our bourbon’s namesake. It all started during a conversation with his former apprentice, Elmer T. Lee. Mr. Lee recalled the days when Col. Blanton entertained friends and special guests by serving them Warehouse H bourbon. Col. Blanton discovered that this Warehouse aged bourbon better than any other on the property, particularly in the middle sections known as the center cut. After tasting, Col. Blanton selected a single cask he liked best and had it bottled. The bottles became his specially selected single barrel bourbons.

Mr. Lee’s concept became a reality when the owners asked him to oversee the project and select the best casks from the same Warehouse H. In 1984, Blanton’s was America’s first entry into the ultra-premium whiskey market. Today most distilleries offer one or more single cask bottlings, but Blanton’s was the first and we still believe they are the best single cask bottlings on the market.
