  • Our tour guide, Bernadette, did a great job and was sweet as can be. She definitely made our tour a great one!  more »
  • Of course I would have to say the tasting was my favorite part! Great experience! Bourbon @ it's best!  more »
  • We visited Barton on Saturday and had Rick for our tour guide. A great tour, very informative, and we enjoyed the tasting at the end. I think it’s the best bourbon ball I’ve had on any of the tours. We bought some of the chocolate bourbon cream that is only available at the distillery. Really enjoyed our visit.
  • This place is legit. You feel like you're really stepping back in time and getting a history lesson here. Our tour guide was very nice & knowledgeable. This tour is longer than most. The tour itself takes a full hour and then a tasting follows. It's FREE which is a huge bonus.
