I'm a Kentucky native and bourbon fanatic. There isn't many distilleries that I haven't been to. Although the tour guide was great, the tour itself is the worst I've been on. Sampling the product was really the only enjoyable part.More

This was a quick stop on our tour, just for a tasting. This tasting was done in a conference room in which there were not enough chairs for everyone and this was obviously not the only purpose for the room. The Barton employee did not...More

This was the first stop of the day and we ended up being the only couple on the tour. They did a really nice job of walking you through the distilling process without making it feel too "corporate". Good sized facility - lots of expansion...More

We took the Barton Distillery tour and were impressed. The quality of the tour guide was first rate. He gave the best description of the bourbon distilling process that I have heard. Simple and direct. And the tour was free.

This distillery was one of many we toured last weekend, and one of my favorites. An older establishment without the grandiose visitor center and gift shop. It made up for that with the genuine warmth of their staff and their passion and love. Do not...More
