Sazerac Hires 1,000th Employee

The Sazerac Company, one of the largest family-owned distilling companies in the United States, has just added the 1,000th employee to its operations in Kentucky, which include the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Franklin County, Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, The Glenmore Distillery in Owensboro, and Sazerac headquarters in Louisville. In 1992, the Sazerac Company bought Buffalo Trace Distillery, which had suffered a decline in business along with the rest of the bourbon industry. At that time, Buffalo Trace employed only 50 individuals, down from 1,000 following World War II.
