As if you needed another reason to visit the powerhouse whiskey producer Buffalo Trace Distillery, well, now you have it…
Resuming and returning this month, iconic Buffalo Trace Distillery (Frankfort, KY) just announced their popular Blanton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens Tour and Tasting.
Guests are invited to explore the distillery’s Albert B. Blanton Arboretum, Botanical Gardens, and Bird Sanctuary, which surround Col. Blanton’s historic 1934 residence on the sprawling, picturesque property of Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort — recognized as a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service and as a certified Level II Accredited Arboretum.
Starting April 18th and running through autumn, the complimentary Arboretum and Botanical Gardens Tour and Tasting will welcome garden and bird enthusiasts every Tuesday at 11 am to be immersed in a unique outdoor educational experience. Guests will enjoy a special guided walking tour of the breathtaking natural beauty of the iconic distillery’s grounds in bloom while scoping for the 100 bird species that grace the facility, recently confirmed by Frankfort Audubon Society. The tour concludes with a sample of Buffalo Trace’s award-winning products.
“Buffalo Trace Distillery is thrilled to open our scenic gardens and bio-diverse sanctuaries up to those who share a love for nature’s majesty and Kentucky’s signature bourbon,” said Dennis Walsh, Homeplace Manager, Buffalo Trace Distillery. “As the days grow longer and our gardens begin to flourish, we look forward to offering a unique bourbon experience to first-time visitors and providing our returning visitors a chance to enjoy the distillery from a new perspective by showcasing our unique horticultural heritage.”
The 75-minute Blanton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens Tour and Tasting includes stairs, as comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended. For safety purposes, this tour is unavailable to guests under 12 years old.
