As Seen on National TV Show “Ghost Hunters®.
Apparently there are more spirits at Buffalo Trace Distillery than those aging in the warehouses, at least according to the investigators from a popular ghost hunting show that airs on the SyFy network.
Buffalo Trace Distillery was investigated by television’s number one paranormal reality series, “Ghost Hunters®” and the episode aired on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011 on the SyFy network.
The show’s two lead investigators, Jason and Grant, said Buffalo Trace was one of the few sites they had been to where all of the investigators on the team had a paranormal experience. The show’s producers came to Buffalo Trace asking to film there, due to viewer demand. It is the first time the TV show had ever filmed at a distillery.
The Ghost Tours will last approximately an hour, and follow the path as seen on “Ghost Hunters®,” including some rarely‐toured areas of the Distillery. The tours will conclude with a tasting.
