Buffalo Trace Leads List of 'Most Popular Kentucky Distilleries'

The popularity was determined by the number of Google searches for each distillery.

Topping the list is Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, which claims the distinction of being the oldest continually operating distillery in the world, with its first bourbon entering production nearly 250 years ago in 1775. The historic site produces 2.65 million gallons of whisky each year.

In No. 2 position is James B. Beam Distilling Company, Clermont, followed by Woodford Reserve.  Maker's Mark is No. 4, followed by (in order) Old Forester, Evan Williams, Bulleit Distilling, Wild Turkey, and Michter's Distillery. Four Roses and Angel's Envy tied for 10th place.
