In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway followed by America’s first explorers. Those brave pioneers distilled whiskey using traditional methods and drank it right off the still. They called it White Dog. This raw distillate was clear, un-aged and had a hint of sweet corn. Later distillers discovered this spirit was perfect for aging - creating what we know today as fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Buffalo Trace Distillery is still making whiskey on the spot where ancient buffalo once crossed the Kentucky River and following centuries of time-honored distilling tradition. Enjoy this White Dog (also known as moonshine) the way Americans did more than 200 years ago. Sweet aroma, with a slight burn. The corn coats the tongue with oil and vanilla.
All whiskey is actually considered “white dog” when it comes off a still. It is un-aged, raw whiskey. This whiskey has never seen the inside of a barrel.
