BARDSTOWN, KENTUCKY (Aug. 19, 2014) – With so much to see, Barton 1792 Distillery will begin offering three new tours this September, including The Barton Tradition Tour, Bushel to Bottle Tour and 1792 Estate Tour.
The Barton Tradition Tour is an hour long tour in which visitors get a look at the distillery’s daily processes and inside Warehouse H, a traditional barrel rickhouse built in the 1930s. This tour takes off from the Gift Shop on the hour from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
On the Bushel to Bottle Tour, visitors follow the bourbon-making process from grain to the bottle, and get a full look at the fermentation, distillation and the bottling processes. This tour begins at the Gift Shop at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and lasts for an hour-and-a-half.
On the 1792 Estate Tour guests have the unique opportunity to walk through what is believed to be the world’s largest palletized barrel aging warehouse. The two-hour motorized tour takes visitors behind the scenes to see each step in the distilling process, to see the World’s Largest Whisky Barrel, the barrel filling and dumping processes, to the Tom Moore Spring that the distillery draws its iron-free limestone water from and much more. This tour begins at 11:30 a.m. Mondays through Fridays and because of the vast amount of ground the tour covers on the 196-acre property, is limited to groups of five. Reservations are required for this tour.
All tours at Barton 1792 Distillery are complimentary, rich in history, and conclude with a complimentary tasting of the award-winning products made at the distillery. Walk-in are welcome to join the Barton Tradition Tour and Bushel to Bottle Tours, however reservations are strongly suggested for large groups.
