FIRST TIME ENTRIES FROM 1792 DISTILLERY NAMED WINNERS AT THE NEW YORK WORLD WINE & SPIRITS COMPETITION

BARDSTOWN, Ky (Sept. 2012) – Two favorites from the Barton 1792 Distillery were recently awarded medals during the New York Bar and Restaurant Show at the 2nd Annual New York World Wine and Spirits Competition.

1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon won a silver medal, and Kentucky Tavern Bourbon won a bronze medal. Both of these bourbons have had a spectacular year as far as awards go, earning medals as well in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

A distinguished panel of judges at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition made their selections from well over 400 entries.

“We’re very happy to have such a good showing for our first foray into this prestigious competition,” said Ken Pierce, director of distillation and quality assurance. “1792 and Kentucky Tavern are both excellent bourbons, and we’re glad the judges thought so too.”
