Getting to Maker's Mark is not the easiest thing to do. If you enter the way we did, you will drive on miles of very narrow country road. However, the distillery itself is gorgeous and, during the time of our tour, also had a wonderful...More

Walking tour took us through all aspects of the distillery plant with a bourbon tasting at the conclusion. Also had the opportunity to "dip" your own bottle of Maker's Mark in the wax to create it's signature seal.
