FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Tours and visitation at Buffalo Trace Distillery will reopen Wednesday, July 1, with new safety guidelines and restrictions.

It's the first time the distillery will be open since the coronavirus pandemic began.

Buffalo Trace has enacted a number of new safety protocols in compliance with CDC guidelines and government recommendations in order to reopen to the public and resume tours and events.

Advance registration is required for all visitors, including for tours, tastings and events. You can register here.

The Distillery grounds and playground will only be available to guests who have registered and checked-in. This includes usage of the grounds for photography.

To make social distancing a little easier, Buffalo Trace will be reopening with a newly expanded Visitor Center, which triples the size of the original Visitor Center, and will allow ample space and comfort for guests exploring the Gift Shop or tasting in the new expansive tasting rooms.

All tours and tastings will remain complimentary.
