  • We prefer the smaller distilleries such as Barton's. It is not as busy as the larger companies. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was walking and due to the cold was a bit too chilly...  more »
  • Barton distillery is one of the small distilleries but don't let that fool you, they make one of the best bourbons you can drink. The 1792 small batch is their top shelf bourbon and it is worth the tr...  more »
  • I give the actual tour 4 stars and the overall experience 2 1/2 stars. My husband and I did the free distillery tour on a snowy Saturday afternoon. I’ve toured 3 other distilleries over the past sever...  more »

  • Very happily surprised with this find. It was on the way to another distillery so we just stopped in and ended up having a private tour as the other group we were waiting for didn't show up. Walked through the entire plant, had a quality tasting at the end and discovered a sample I actually quite enjoyed. Happy to learn it was only priced at $30. Good day!
  • Fantastic Tour! Our tour guide was down to earth and yet very factual and informative. And the tour and tasting were free, so that’s money we could spend on their delicious bourbon from the gift shop. All the other distilleries had a ‘corporate’ feel to them, while this one was about the product and the great people behind it’s production. All the employees were smiling and had great attitudes.
  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience! Justin, our tour guide, was great and knowledgeable, as are the rest of the staff. This was one of our favorite stops on our trip. The Very Old Barton is delicious and the chocolates alone were worth the stop. The picturesque scenery is breathtaking. It's a must see!
  • This is a surprisingly fun tour that isn't on the big tour at all. Clearly, the tour is small in size, but the real treat here is its Chocolate Bourbon Ball liqueur ... something I can't find elsewhere! Kudos on the history/mystery of how the name came to be ... and the fun tasting too
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the tour with our guide, Katie. Firstly, it's free, which is fantastic, but it does include plenty of tasting. Secondly, Katie was an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge of the history and processes of the distillery, and a easygoing style which made the tour very enjoyable. I ended up buying some products in the store as the bourbon was so good. A+!
