We missed the last tour but were able to enjoy a complimentary tasting of two good bourbons. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Nice little gift shop which isn't a commercial hub. Definitely worth stopping in. You can see the industrial side of the distillery when you drive in as the tasting room is nestled in between distribution and main production areas.

With Barton, you know you are in a major industrial facility. You get to see the real deal. Folks were friendly, and the gift shop was nice.

We recently spent a few days in Kentucky, and wanted to tour a few distilleries. 1792 has been my bourbon of choice lately, so Barton's was on the list. They provide a thorough and informative tour, and considering it's free, you certainly won't find a better tour. We got to see all parts of the distillery that weren't operating, inside a warehouse, and the bottling plant which was in operation. We also got a complimentary tasting of 2 bourbons when we finished the tour. My compliments to the tour guides, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. What more could you ask for?

The Barton tour and tasting is comprehensive. You get to see a full-fledged, operating distillery including the bottling operation. It's a great tour though do be prepared for climbing 3-4 flights of stairs.

The tour is free. We enjoyed the tour. The bottling plant had 5 lines running. I would highly recommend going to it. The guide was very informative. You have taste testing at the end of the tour.
