FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP)-- The National Park Service has designated Buffalo Trace's George T. Stagg Distillery a National Historic Landmark.
The designation highlights it as a "highly intact" example of pre-Prohibition industrial architecture that also shows how distilling expanded once the federal ban was repealed in the early 1930s. Buildings are in active use and feature quarry-faced stonework and decorative brickwork in a 1930s-era factory.
The National Park Service says the distillery was established in 1857-58 and acquired in 1870 by E.H. Taylor Jr., whose portrait hangs in the yeast room.
Buffalo Trace is the third distillery named a National Historic Landmark, along with Labrot & Graham's Old Oscar Pepper Distillery near Versailles, where Woodford Reserve is made, and the Burks' Distillery, owned by Maker's Mark, in Loretto.
