Buffalo Trace Dealing With Bourbon Inventory Shortages

Published: 06/04/2014

FRANKFORT, Ky. — A year after warning consumers a bourbon shortage was looming, Buffalo Trace Distillery is continuing to take steps to mitigate the problem.

“We’re making more bourbon every day. In fact, we’re distilling more than we have in the last 40 years,” said Harlen Wheatley, master distiller. “Still, it’s hard to keep up. Although we have more bourbon than last year when we first announced the rolling blackouts, we’re still short and there is no way to predict when supply will catch up with demand.”
