Our tasting guide was hysterical! We had a great time and she did a good job explaining each of the bourbons we tasted. The bourbon balls were delicious!

The Barton label is an old one. The flagship bourbon is 1792 and it's very good. Gift shop is small. Tour is free and people are friendly. Well worth a stop. Not far from Heaven Hill and Willett.

This distillery is less polished than other famous ones, but it has a lot of charm and excellent guides. It was definitely worth the time spent. No high pressure sales. A great stop to make on a trip.

Free tour and tasting, best tour we did while in Kentucky, and considering that we spent $24 per person to do the tour and tasting at Willett earlier in the day, this was so much better. The tour guide was excellent, she knew everything there...More

This tour is in depth and if you manage to tag along with a very small group, is very interesting and tailored to your questions. What I especially enjoyed was a visit to one of the barrel warehouses, a type of place most tours do...More
