Waterfill & Frazier Distillery transfers the Shawhan Distillery label to Barton Distillery in Bardstown, KY. Barton also operated under the trade name of County Line Distillery during this time, and continued to supply McKesson and Robins with the Shawhand Distillery private brand label of Old Miner for quite some time after.

At the same time, Joe Makler sold the actual Shawhan Distillery plant to the James B. Beam Company which was now a subsidiary of American Brands. The Beam Company torn down the plant but kept the large storage warehouse.
