George T. Stagg is a limited-production bourbon whiskey distributed by Buffalo Trace Distillery, as part of the distillery's "Antique Collection " series. It is a high proof uncut and unfiltered bourbon, aged for approximately 15 years. It has been distributed only once a year in the fall, but in 2005 a second spring release was added. It is rare to find outside the U.S., but some is distributed in other major cities. The whiskey has been highly awarded in many spirit ratings competitions and has won best rankings over years in Jim Murray's "Whisky Bible". The San Francisco World Spirits Competition, for example, awarded three gold and three double gold medals to the bourbon between 2006 and 2012.
George T. Stagg was awarded the Chairman's Trophy among Kentucky Straight Bourbons at the 2014 New York "Ultimate Spirits Challenge", and in 2013 it won the Best North American Whiskey award at the World Whiskies Awards.
In the summer of 2013, Buffalo Trace released Stagg Jr., a younger expression of George T. Stagg. Stagg Jr. Bourbon is aged for 8 and 9 years, and bottled at 134.4 proof.
