356 – Why did Barton 1792 stop tours? What did VA ABC get right and wrong? What is one bar essential that isn’t bourbon? on Bourbon Community Roundtable #68



A few weeks ago on TWiB we talked about Barton 1792 closing the doors for tours indefinitely, but now we get to speculate. Was this because Sazerac feels they can’t make it stand up to the current standard people expect of tours? Or was it a way to put all their eggs into turning the distillery into a workhorse for it brands? The Virginia ABC moved to a new randomized system for their allocated bourbon releases. We examine what they got right and what they got wrong. Lastly, we know people are starting to build their own bourbon bars, but what’s something you need for your bar that is not bourbon?
