About: 

Visit the campus-like setting of the Maker’s Mark® Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky on the banks of Hardin’s Creek. Established in 1805 as a gristmill distillery, Maker’s Mark® is the oldest working distillery on its original site - and a National Historic Landmark. The historic charm is not the only reason to visit the Maker’s Mark distillery; the beautifully manicured grounds are a functioning arboretum; hosting more than 275 species of trees and shrubs, and makes for an ideal picnic spot.

Tours allow guests to experience the entire bourbon-making process first-hand, from the processing of the grains to the rotating of the barrels to the purposely inefficient process of hand-dipping each and every bottle in signature red wax (visitors even get the chance to dip their very own!). Maker’s Mark promises a truly unique, intimate experience that sheds light on the specialness and tradition of making Kentucky bourbon.
