An intriguing finish in the Bourbon category, executed right.

Founded in 1874 in Bardstown, Kentucky, The Barton 1792 Distillery has been around for a while and it’s changed many-a hand and many-a name. Right from the start, Tom Moore was an employee there and he eventually bought the distillery and named it Morton Spring Distillery. Then, he sold it to a group of outside investors. He stayed as an employee at the shop, but then, he bought the lot next door to open a brand new competing distillery. Eventually, he was able to buy Morton Spring Distillery once again and merge the two operations, building an innovative Whiskey empire. He renamed the combined operation “The Thomas Moore Distillery”. After the Prohibition, he sold the property and it was bought and sold a few more times. Sazerac bought it in 2009 and decided to rechristen the entire operation “The Barton 1792 Distillery.” Full circle.

Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Chardonnay Casks pays homage to the Bourbon pioneer that was making the juice at the distillery back in 1874. It’s made from Barton 1792 Bourbon with a high rye mash bill that’s first aged for at least 5 years in new American oak and then finished in Chardonnay casks for a couple of extra years. Definitely not your ordinary Bourbon finish, but we’re absolutely here for it. It’s rich and super buttery with flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, and oak.

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 was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
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.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
