1792 Ridgemont Reserve

1792 Ridgemont Reserve is the flagship bourbon produced by Sazerac’s Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, KY.

This bottling is named after the year Kentucky became a state. The Barton distillery is owned by Sazerac (Buffalo Trace) but only produces a few brands, most of which stays out East. It’s around eight years old (it used to have an age statement, which was dropped in 2013) and comes from a high-rye recipe.

The Barton 1792 Distillery’s Ridgemont Reserve bourbon has won its first Silver Medal in the 2011 Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition (LAIWSC), one of only two bourbons to pick up silver in its category.
