This is a collectable bottle of Barton Reserve produced in the 1970s. It is a blend, made from 40% straight whiskey and 60% neutral grain spirit. The size is 118cl, as it is an old 40oz bottle.

Today all Barton brands are owned by Sazerac, the huge US whisky company behind the Buffalo Trace Distillery and many other well-known names. However, their ownership of Barton is relatively recent - they only purchased the brands in 2009.

In the 1970s, when this bottle was made, Barton Distilling was owned by a legendary liquor merchant from Chicago, Oscar Getz. He acquired the distillery in 1944 and gave it the name Barton Distillery.

So Barton Distilling was an independent whisky producer in its own right in the 1970s, making this bottle of Barton Reserve a little piece of American whisky history.
