    Things Tour Guides Say - Barton

    I took the Barton / 1792 / Tom Moore tour during the sampler. I learned:

    -Bourbon has to be between 51% and 80% corn. If over 80%, then it's corn whiskey, not bourbon.

    -Bourbon (with no mention of the word Straight) has to be aged a min. of 2 years

    I did learn that BT is aging Weller barrels at Barton.

    Is there a doubler there? There was a question about that.

    Yes, was there any mention of the mystery doubler?

    A few of us toured there a couple years back. Can't recall any incorrect things said by the guide but wasn't paying much attention as she was damn cute .

    I hope and expect every tour I take to go something like this.

    I have had folks who know say their is and old worn out doubler, but it is not used. It is on the roof. I am also, told, but do not know if anything is to it, Paging Chuck, that Barton will be closed down for good. The distilling plant.

    We were at the gift shop and they said they will be distilling big time real soon as they got a contract with someone to distill for them.
