The decision to hit the Maker's Mark distillery was a last second decision by my brother and I. We like Maker's Mark bourbon, but it was off the beaten track. Boy, what a surprise. The drive up there was gorgeous. It has to be in...More

Visited several distilleries on the trail and I must say Maker's Mark is the top distillery in Kentucky, as far as I am concerned. I was impressed with the guide and the great stories of the distillery.

Bring your ID! Stopped here on a whim, the guide was fantastic! Pleasant and informative. Learned the difference between whiskey and bourbon. A lot of walking but not strenuous. The tasting at the end was interesting but I've discovered I don't like bourbon, even the...More

Makers Mark website probably has the answer.

I am finally planning a trip down to Makers to get some bourbon from the barrel with my mom's name on it. We plan to go in April so that when she turns 90 in May she can toast her 90th birthday with some Marker's Mark from the barrel where here name is listed. Looking for suggestions as to where to stay while we are in Kentucky. Thank you.

The Hill House bnb in Loretto. Awesome little bnb look it up on tripadvisor. Well worth it.2 min drive from MM
Is it worth going on the Behind the Bar tour? This sounded like a lot of fun. Is this tour only available on Fridays?

Don't miss on the behind the bar tour as this was one of the better one's on the Bourbon Tour. We also enjoyed Buffalo Trace but this one was the best.
