Rumors are swirling around again, this time in the Sampler thread. According to Chuck's blog entry at the beginning of this thread, Barton-1792 was supposed to distill from Nov 2011 until last month. According to some of the chatter in that thread, that never happened.
So is it now time to panic?
Maybe not panic, but it won't hurt to pick up a few extra handles of Fleischmann's Rye.
You're our main Fleischmann's Rye mule, so it's on you.
I was told they distilled until the first of March and then shut down.
Not only has Barton been distilling, they started earlier and went longer than originally planned. The original plan was to start in December and run until February, but when the date got closer their forecasts were upped so instead they started in October and ran until March. The current plan calls for them to distill again in the fall but no date has been set. They are still open for tours on their normal Monday-Saturday schedule.
