About The Man:
George T. Stagg was born December 19, 1835 in Garrard County, Kentucky. Little is known of his early years, however, the impact his adult life had on the bourbon industry was quite impressive.
Working as a whiskey salesman in St. Louis, he had the good fortune of teaming up with bourbon icon E. H. Taylor. Together they built the most dominant American distillery of the 19th century. A leading industry expert at the time declared the distillery "one plus ultra of its class," the best of the best. Today, the Buffalo Trace Distillery strives to carry on the tradition of innovation and excellence of one of its famous forefathers.
In 2000, the distillery was honored with the prestigious "Distillery of the Year" designation by Malt Advocate Magazine, the culmination of Stagg's work, begun nearly 150 years ago.
