Buffalo Trace Distillery (Sazerac) commissioned a new still house. The new still stands 40 feet tall and can produce 60,000 gallons a day. It is a duplicate of Buffalo Trace’s existing still, allowing the Distillery to double production on fan favorites such as Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, Weller, Blanton’s, E.H. Taylor Jr., and the rest of the whiskies in its portfolio.
Fans will be able to see the new stillhouse on the Hard Hat tour. The 90-minute tour is being resumed after having been suspended since 2019 owing to construction. Not only will guests get to see the new still house, but some of the other additions as a part of the distillery's $1.2 billion expansion. The tour includes the new 22-foot-tall cookers, a peek inside the distillery's 93,000-gallon fermenter, and the new dry house, which can dry 12,000 pounds of grain an hour. There is no charge for the tour or tasting.
