Exhibit Design - Buffalo Trace Distillery

Client: Buffalo Trace Distillery, historic home built in the 1880s

Scope: Concept, research, design of interpretive boards, production, on-site installation

(In collaboration with Joanna Hay Productions)

This visually rich, interpretive exhibit was installed in 2015 as part of the visitor experience at this National Landmark distillery. The limestone house was built around 1880 on the banks of the Kentucky River. The artifacts include prehistoric limestone flakes found on-site by archaeologists showing evidence of the activities of Native Americans. The interior fabric of the building remains intact with remnants of the original animal-hair plaster walls exposed. Vintage lab instruments are displayed. The story of the father of the modern bourbon industry, E.H. Taylor, Jr., his family and his famous feud with George T. Stagg is told with vibrant, beautifully restored, archival images and tasteful graphic design.
