BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY

Master Distiller Emeritus ELMER T. LEE recently celebrated his 9Oth birthday in the Elmer T. Lee Clubhouse at the distillery.  He was joined by friends, family and other industry legends such as Master Distillers JIMMY RUSSELL of Wild Turkey, PARKER and CRAIG BEAM of Heaven Hill, JIM RUTLEDGE of Four Roses, GREG DAVIS of Tom Moore and KEVIN SMITH of Maker’s Mark.  Buffalo Trace paid tribute to Elmer by unveiling a commemorative bottling of Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon.  Elmer is one of only three living master distillers with a bourbon named after him.  He personally selected the ten barrels that went into this very limited release.
