Celebrate White Dog Days at Buffalo Trace.

Since no one else has mentioned it, allow me to call your attention to White Dog Days at Buffalo Trace Distillery, October 15-17.

I think this is the second year they have done it. Put it under the heading of clever Buffalo Trace marketing ideas. They are one of the few producers that can pull off something like this and they are taking advantage of it.

White Dog Days celebrates the Trace’s first white dog of the fall distilling season. By Federal law there are two whiskey distilling seasons. January through June is spring, June through December is fall. Most distilleries take some kind of break in the summer and resume distilling according to their own production planning needs. For Buffalo Trace, the fall season begins the second week of October.

According to Buffalo Trace, this will be their 236th distilling season.

For more information, direct from the source, go here.

The main public event is Saturday, October 17, from noon to 6:00 PM on the distillery grounds. There will be live music, distillery tours, barrel rolling exhibitions and competitions, a corn hole tournament, and other activities. Admission is free. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. You are encouraged to bring your own chairs or blankets.

For the benefit of any newbies reading this, “white dog” is a colloquial term for spirit right off the still. The barreling of the season's first white dog is analogus to many familiar autumn harvest traditions.

Especially if you are in the general vicinity, this might be a fun and unique distillery experience.

I will be there with a bus tour from an Oral History meeting being held at the Galt House that weekend. I am looking forward to being there.
