a tour guide pouring a sample of bourbon for some guests at buffalo trace distillerySpirits at the Buffalo Trace Distillery

Apparently there are more spirits than those aging in the warehouses at Buffalo Trace.  The Distillery has been rumored to be haunted by Col. Blanton for years. The Stoney Point Mansion where he died in 1859 is the site of his appearances.

I just had a group of guests enjoying visiting many of the Bourbon Trail distilleries and sampling as they went. They had a great time on the Ghost Tour although Col. Blanton did not appear for them!

The show's producers came to Buffalo Trace asking to film there, due to viewer requests.

Visitors can now have their own experience on the Ghost Tour at the distillery. The tour will take guests to the rarely seen Stoney Point Mansion as well as several other sites that were shown on the "Ghost Hunters" episode. The tour lasts about an hour and concludes with a sample of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, the distillery's flagship brand, along with one other award winning product made at the distillery.  Other themed tours are available as well.
