The Barton 1792 Distillery operates on the site of the historic Tom Moore Distillery, established in 1879 near the "Tom Moore Spring," the same spring we draw our iron-free limestone water from today. The 192-acre distillery is home to beautiful wildlife and many historie buildings, including our still house and 28 aging warehouses. The legendary 'Warehouse Z' stands tall on the western bluff enoying full summer sun and optimal air-circulation for aging bourbon whiskey. It is in this warehouse that 1792 Ridgemont Reserve ages to the peak of maturity.
