Stopped at the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, KY, Although not on the "official" Bourbon Trail, it is well worth the stop. The tour is free and they cover the entire operations. Unfortunately, they were not distilling at the time (August 14, 2012), but the rest of the operations were still running. Our tour guide Rick was really knowledgeable and made the distillery tour one of the better ones we have been on. The tasting session was also very informative and learned a lot more about bourbon from Rick. The gift shop is small, but has a good selection of Barton produced bourbon and other Barton souvenirs.
