(FRANKFORT,KY) Bourbon is America's Spirit and Beverage Underground hits the road to go to the source when Larry 'Smokey' Genta visited The Buffalo Trace Distillery in the Bluegrass State of Kentucky.

The Bourbon Trail is a region where over 95% of all bourbon is distilled from a swath of limestone rich land that is between Lexington in the west and Louisville to the east, and from I-64 to The Bluegrass Parkway to the south.

Although the name Buffalo Trace is relatively 'new' (1999) to Bourbon history, by most reports it is the oldest distilling site in the US, and was the home of American Whiskey before distilleries were forced to go legit by the taxman.

Besides their namesake Bourbon, Buffalo Trace is the home to at least fourteen American bourbon, rye, wheat and blended whiskies including Blantons, Pappy Van Winkle, Eagle Rare, Elmer T. Lee, Old Charter, Benchmark, Ancient Age, Hancock's Reserve, W. L. Weller, George T. Stagg, Rock Hill, Sazerac and Thomas Handy. The names and histories of the brands make a visit to 'The Trace' like seeing an All-Star line-up worthy of Cooperstown or Canton Hall of Fame status. Read More about our visit to Buffalo Trace at
