Barton Distilleries


Barton Distilleries, California, Kentucky & Maryland, USA. (Sazerac Company Inc. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA).


Barton Brands was established, just after the repeal of prohibition in 1933, by Oscar Getz and Lester Abelson from Chicago. In 1944 they acquired a whiskey/bourbon facility in Bardstown, Kentucky called the Tom Moore Distillery - today this is still owned by Sazerac, and is known as the Barton 1792 Distillery. Oscar Getz was a keen collector of whiskey memorabilia and this collection is housed today in the Oscar Getz Museum in Bardstown.

Barton Brands Ltd. and the Barton Distillery Co. were acquired in 2009 by Sazerac Company Inc. – an independent family owned business.
