BARDSTOWN, Ky. – Three of Barton 1792 Distillery’s bourbon whiskies were awarded medals at the 2021 American World Whiskies Awards presented by Whisky Magazine.
1792 Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey received a Silver Medal and both 1792 Bottled in Bond and 1792 Full Proof received Bronze Medals in the Bourbon taste category of the competition, defined by style and process of whisky production.
“We are incredibly honored to be the recipient of these notable awards,” Master Distiller Danny Kahn said.
Whiskies in each category were subject to blind tastings in a three-round judging process to select, reward and promote the world’s best whiskies to consumers and trade across the globe. The winners from the American World Whiskies Awards 2021 will now compete with counterparts from all over the world, with global winners to be announced in March.
