George T. Stagg was born December 19, 1835 in Garrard County, Kentucky USA.
While little is known of his early years, the impact his adult life had on the bourbon industry was quite profound. Working as a whiskey salesman in St. Louis-Missouri, good fortune and a little luck found him teaming up with bourbon pioneer E.H. Taylor, Jr. Together they built the most dominant American bourbon/whiskey distillery of the 19th century. Stagg’s shrewd sales skills and business acumen then helped transform the Distillery (known as the O.F.C. Distillery) into one of the world’s most influential bourbon producers. In 1904, the Distillery was re-branded to bear Stagg’s name, a title that was maintained for nearly a century until the name changed again to the Buffalo Trace distillery in 2001.
Today, the Buffalo Trace Distillery continues to carry on the tradition of innovation and distinction of its famous forefathers producing the highly sort after George T. Stagg Kentucky Bourbon/Whiskey in very small numbers as part of the distillery’s ‘Antique Collection’ series.
