Owner description: Watch a sour mash ferment in giant cypresswood vats on its way to becoming that heavenly Kentucky bourbon at this distillery.

This is a beautiful campus WAY out in nowhere Kentucky. You really get the historic, non-corporate vibe at this distillery (even though their production is quite corporate).

We’re from Wisconsin, so alcohol isn’t a taboo thing like other states. I brought my 10 year old girls along and they appreciated the process and science behind Maker’s Mark. I figure there are chemical engineers, microbiologists, artists, marketers, accountants, etc on staff. It’s good to show them all the different jobs out there.

I highly recommend the tour.

Very informative tour.
Comfortable ticket office and waiting area.
Be prepared to do some waking, half of it outside
Informative and friendly tour guides. Our guide Katie was great.
It's a bit out of the way, but worth the trip.

I was actually here with my brother and being an Ambassador with Maker's Mark, we were very well received. Our host was no other than Bill Samuels Jr. It was fantastic and a great learning experience!

The folks at Maker's Mark have really put some thought and money into making their tour experience first-rate. The tour guide was a fountain of interesting knowledge about the history and process that goes into making bourbon. I highly recommend.

This distillery is off the beaten path but it was a pretty drive to get there. Took a morning tour with Lindsey. She did a great job and talked about more than just the facts that you get at some distilleries. Found it interesting that they make the special barrels with extra wood staves added for additional flavor for people willing to pay for it. Loved watching them dip the bottles in wax. The tasting was good with the original product being my favorite. In the gift shop you can dip your own bottle for a great memento.
