Barton 1792 Distillery to Stop Public Tours

In a Facebook post in early April, Barton 1792 Distillery announced they will cease public distillery tours effective June 30th of this year. 

 Here is the Facebook post in its entirety:

Today we’re sharing an important update regarding tour operations at Barton 1792 Distillery: after careful review of our brand needs, plant capacity, safety, and practicality we have made the decision to no longer offer public tours at the Distillery effective June 30. Instead, we’ll concentrate Barton 1792 Distillery on what it does best: producing the world’s best whiskey. 

If you've already booked a tour or visit prior to June 30, 2022, it will happen as planned.

We thank you for your support over the years and hope to welcome you to one of our other homeplaces in the future.

If you are in Kentucky before the end of June, the distillery is located at 501 Cathedral Manor, Bardstown, KY 40004. 

My Take

A huge bummer anytime a distillery closes tours to the public. While I've never been to Barton, it is located in Bardstown, which is home to a lot of the various distilleries so it could easily be knocked out in tandem with the others in the area. 

If you're in the area before June 30th, it's probably worth a try to get in a tour before it's closed for good.
