Master distiller and Kentucky bourbon king, Elmer T. Lee died at age 93 yesterday afternoon. After serving in World War II, Lee began a long career in bourbonmaking. He worked his way up in the George T. Stagg Distillery, or Buffalo Trace Distillery, eventually becoming the plant manager. But Lee truly made his mark when he introduced the first single-barrel bourbon in 1984, just before his retirement. A well-loved icon, Elmer T. Lee will be missed by bourbon makers and bourbon drinkers the world over.
