I know that Barton bought the rights to the Mr Boston name about the sametime they picked up some other Glenmore labels. So, I would check with either Barton or Glenmore histories.

I think Albany is Viking, birthplace (but not current home) of Georgia Moon, which also belongs to Barton. Or did. It probably belongs to Sazerac now.

I thought GM was put out by HH.

Note that Craig states that Viking was the "birthplace (but not current home)", of GM. I think Craig is pointing out that Georgia Moon was introduced by the Viking Distillery in Albany many decades ago. Heaven Hill does own the brand now, though.

I thought he was also saying it is currently owned by Barton, an easy mistake to make since B'town appears on the bottle. Didn't mean to sound nit-picky, tho. Sorry about that, Craig.
