Still located at its original site on the banks of the Kentucky River, the Buffalo Trace Distillery is a fully operational distillery producing bourbon, rye and vodka, and is a National Historic Landmark and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Recently, the distillery completed a $1.2 billion expansion, including the addition of 14 new barrel warehouses, 12 additional fermenters, additional cookers, a new cooling system, and a much larger visitor center. By the end of 2022, the new dry house, hammer mill, an additional still house and wastewater treatment plant will be operational.
PENETRON ADMIX SB, a crystalline waterproofing admixture, was added to 1,400 yds3 of concrete to protect the sump pit, foundation slab, foundation walls and certain parts of the slab-on-grade of the renovated warehouse. The Buffalo Trace warehouse’s concrete structures are now resistant to concrete deterioration caused by water penetration and corrosion, while withstanding water from a flooding river, and hydrostatic pressure from the groundwater.
