About Buffalo Trace White Dog Rye Mash Whiskey
Over two centuries ago, some of the first whiskey that was made in America was a Straight Rye. It was distilled from a clear, raw and un-aged distillate right off the still that was perfect for aging – this was called the White Dog. Sourcing inspiration from this time-honored method, this White Dog Rye Mash keeps up with the traditions of the Founding Fathers. Bottled straight off the still at a whooping 125 proof, it handles its high proof wonderfully, boasting earthy and excitingly spicy flavors. An un-aged whiskey that will surprise you with its full character.

About Buffalo Trace
Located on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that the migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
