BARDSTOWN, Ky. — Barton 1792 Distillery announces the first three expressions of Thomas S. Moore. The spirit will be available in limited release this December, as a Port Finish, Chardonnay Finish, and a Cabernet Sauvignon Finish.
In 1889, Thomas S. Moore built the Distillery known today as Barton 1792 Distillery. Moore was an early pioneer in Bardstown, recognized today as the Bourbon Capital of the World. Leading up to Prohibition, Moore established a constantly evolving whiskey empire, growing his humble operation into a powerhouse distillery, filling hundreds of barrels of whiskey a day. Business boomed until The 18th Amendment forced the Distillery to cease production in 1920. Today this namesake line of bourbons intends to honor Thomas S. Moore, an innovative bourbon pioneer.
