The spirits have us talking… Sorry, that one was too easy. We can’t help but fall for a great ghost story, and with an industry as old as liquor, there are plenty to go around. Here are five of the most compelling haunted distilleries we hope to visit one day.
With a history dating back to 1787, Kentucky’s Buffalo Trace Distillery has a resident ghost who just can’t seem to quit his job… even in the afterlife. Colonel Albert Blanton started as an office boy and worked his way up to president by the early 1900s. He died on the property in 1959, but his ghost remains to this day. He’s been known to pinch bottoms and leave unexplained footsteps in warehouses, scaring even the trained paranormal seekers who have made the pilgrimage to the bourbon distillery.
