FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The National Park Service has designated Buffalo Trace's George T. Stagg Distillery a National Historic Landmark.

The designation highlights it as a "highly intact" example of pre-Prohibition industrial architecture that also shows how distilling expanded once the federal ban was repealed in the early 1930s. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported buildings are in active use and feature quarry-faced stonework and decorative brickwork in a 1930s-era factory.
