In the woods of Kentucky, Maker's Mark produces small batches of bourbon whiskey. Recognizable by bottles sealed with red wax, the company distills its spirits at 45 percent alcohol by volume (90 proof) using red winter wheat instead of rye. Take a regular tour of the distillery and taste its bourbon, or book an extended tour, where you'll witness the inner workings of crafting this spirit (and you'll get a set of wax-dipped rock glasses as a souvineer). There are plenty of stairs to climb, so dress comfortably. Check out the gift shop, where you can get items such as bourbon chocolates, fleece sweaters, cigars, and coffee. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Maker's Mark by using our Loretto trip itinerary maker app.

Beautiful grounds and thorough tour. If you go right now you will see a beautiful blown glass exhibit By Stephen Powell. If you miss the exhibit the tour will take you into a section of building with beautiful Chihuly glass ceiling. Stunning! The tasting experience was nice and you’ll get to taste five, but I’d advise to skip the mash especially if you’re doing another tour! Love MM bourbon!!
I went on the Bourbon trail for a day a visited a few distilleries and took some tours. This place had the best tour, facility and staff of all of them. Fantastic tour for only $14! This tour includes all of the buildings and is very informative of the process and the culture of the brand. The entire distillery is beautiful and there is a generous tasting at the end. The gift shop also includes some varieties that you can only get on site so grabbing a bottle or two makes the trip more exclusive when you get home. Just make sure that you arrive well before the tour time you want. Time slots are first come first serve. I will certainly be back for a more in depth tour in the future!
