In 1876, John D. Willett — one of Kentucky's original bourbon aristocrats — transferred his interest in the Willett & Frenke Distillery to his sons-in-law, Benjamin Mattingly and Thomas Moore. Mattingly and Moore continued to operate the Willett & Frenke Distillery together until 1881, when Mattingly finally sold his stake in the company to a group of investors. Within a few years, Thomas Moore acquired complete control over the distillery and eponymously renamed it. Moore would continue to operate the distillery for another five decades, until he was ultimately forced to close his doors at the onset of Prohibition.

Today, the Barton 1792 Distillery operates on the same site as the historic Tom Moore Distillery, and continues to use the same methods that Moore used over a century ago when distilling his own bourbon. 1792 Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of corn, rye, and malted barley. While the use of corn in the bourbon's recipe adds classic notes of buttered bread, biscuits, and roasted nuts, the heavy use of rye in the bourbon's mash bill yields a more complex and full-bodied whiskey. After the grains are harvested, they are mashed and fermented before being distilled through a copper-pot still.

After distillation, the bourbon is aged in new, American oak casks on the distillery's estate in Bardstown, Kentucky. During the maturation process, Master Distiller Ken Pierce samples each cask of bourbon as it rests to determine when the bourbon has reached its peak of maturity. "Quality in, quality out," says Pierce, who has over two decades of experience at the distillery.

The Thomas S. Moore brand features ultra-premium whiskey that pays tribute to the founder of the Barton 1792 Distillery. It sees the distillery age their high-rye bourbon normally, before it gets finished in choice wine or spirits casks from around the world. The first 3 releases were finished in Port, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon wine casks. The Port-finished release is bottled at 98.9 proof and features a soft and sweet taste profile with vanilla and baking spice notes.
