Barton 1792 is a distillery founded in 1879 in Bardstown, Kentucky, owned by the Sazerac company. 1792 Ridgemont Reserve was originally introduced to the market by Barton as “Ridgewood Reserve 1792”. The Brown-Forman Corporation sued Barton for trademark infringement, arguing that Ridgewood Reserve’s name and design could confuse consumers with Brown-Forman’s Woodford Reserve trademark. A federal judge ruled in favor of Brown-Forman in 2004, and Barton changed the name of the product to comply with the ruling.
