A Bourbon-y Bourbon — all the classic notes made more prominent with twelve years of age and pitch-perfect ABV.

The Barton 1792 Distillery has been in operation since 1874. It gets the name “1792” from the year the Kentucky became an official state in the United States of America, and it’s also the name of one of the their signature single barrel Bourbon Whiskies. The Barton 1792 Distillery and Barton Brands are owned by Sazerac — one of America’s largest Spirits companies. They control dozens of brands from low end to high end — mostly American Whiskies and Bourbons — that are distributed around the world. The 1792 line of products are all premium, high-end Bourbons.

As we’re writing this, 1792 12 Year Old is the newest limited edition Bourbon offering from Barton — it was officially announced on June 27th, 2019. Master Distiller Danny Kahn seems particularly proud of this release that follows the same mash bill as their core small batch offering. But it is aged a full twelve years — a very pleasant number indeed — and it bottled at 48.3% ABV which will get the job done whether you are sipping it neat or mixing up a cocktail. And it is available at a great price point for a twelve year-old dram, so we say you should get a few of them while they last.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
The signature "1792 Bourbon" product line got its name from the year that Kentucky became an official state in the United States.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
