Here is the statement from Barton 1792 Distillery posted on social media.
“After careful review of our brand needs, plant capacity, safety, and practicality we have made the difficult decision to make a change to our tour operations and will no longer be open for public tours at Barton 1792 Distillery.
We are not taking any new tour reservations at this time, but we are honoring any tours already scheduled through June 30th. The gift shop will be open until June 30th as well.
Our love for the 1792 Bourbon brand and Barton family brands is stronger than ever, and it’s because we have such confidence in the potential of the portfolio that we are adjusting our strategy at Barton 1792 Distillery to focus more acutely on meeting the increasing demand for our products, concentrating the distillery on what it does best: producing the world’s best whiskey.
Tourism operations and tour offerings will not be impacted at any of our other Sazerac homeplaces – including Buffalo Trace Distillery (Kentucky), A. Smith Bowman Distillery (Virginia), Old Montreal Distillery (Montréal) and Sazerac House (New Orleans).”
