"In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway that was followed by America's first pioneers and explorers. On the spot where their migration route crossed the Kentucky River, we've been making bourbon whiskey for over 200 years." Housed inside the hallowed red cedar ornament are two miniature White Oak whiskey barrels. Charred oak barrels combined with the careful distillation process is what gives Buffalo Trace its rich, complex and smooth taste. The barrel heads are printed with the company logo.
