    new kentucky tavern label

    I was in my favorite store yesterday and saw that Kentucky tavern has a new, one hell of an ugly label. This is what threw me off. Said bottled by glenmore distillery, Louisville. It gave sazeracs website on the side, which I know owns the label now, but are they getting somebody to bottle it in Loiusville?

    Re: new kentucky tavern label

    Isn't Kentucky Tavern the value brand from Barton (now owned by Sazerac)? It used to be the cheapest real bourbon I could find back in the '90s. Around here we only get the 80 proof. I have a BIB in my collection I got visiting KY. Now that I know a little about bourbon, I don't drink much KT. I'd still take it over blends, Canadian, or most Scotch.

    Glenmore Distillery is owned by Sazerac. They do a lot of their bottling there.

    Glenmore is in Owensboro though, I thought.

    Glenmore is just a DBA for Sazerac.

    Sazerac doesn't have any operations in Louisville but it has bottling houses in Owensboro, Bardstown, and Frankfort. The only bottling house in Louisville is Brown-Forman's, so if it says "Lousville, Kentucky," that's weird.

    Re: new kentucky tavern label

    I thought it was wierd as well, that is what puzzled me. Why would they bottle in Louisville, especially when they have one heck of a bottling line at Barton, and I have never seen one at BT, but I know they have one, then the one in Owenesboro. New square shaped bottle and one hell of an ugly label.

    They have 3 bottling lines at BT maybe 4 The 3 are 2 hand bottling lines that they bottle things like BTAC probably Pappy and Blanton's and other single barrel stuff. Then they have the big automated line.

    Re: new kentucky tavern label

    I've since found out that although Sazerac has no facility of any kind in Louisville, they can use "Sazerac Company, Louisville, KY" as a universal DBA and avoid printing all of their locations on every label. Nothing has really changed. KT is still bottled at Barton 1792 in Bardstown.

    Is this the label that you are talking about?
