Maybe my favorite stop on the bourbon trail

I have been to a few of the other distilleries. They are all cool in their own right but the Makers Mark is my favorite so far. They let you walk all around the entire complex... read more

We enjoyed the tour, but it wasn't our favorite of the distilleries. The tour guide was friendly and covered the basics. They were in the process of remodeling the grounds when we visited in July 2015. Our basic tour included a tasting of four of their products.

Our driving trip to Mammoth Cave was wonderfully planned by my wife, but after we finished out last cave tour, I was checking out other things to do and realized that we were close to Bourbon country, so I just had to have us add in a unplanned side trip to a Distillery. While not a Bourbon drinker myself, a... More

I have been to a few of the other distilleries. They are all cool in their own right but the Makers Mark is my favorite so far. They let you walk all around the entire complex and see the sights and smells. There's no charge for that. The people were incredible polite and let us walk everywhere. They just updated... More

I'm an ambassador for the brand and back in 2008 or so I put my name in to be etched on a tag that would one day go on a barrel of their wonderful whisky. It finally came true in October of 2014 and I was invited down for a tour and special purchase from my barrel. Without second thought... More

This tour was amazing. The ride to get there was so much. We were traveling on motorcycles with another couple. Tour was interesting and interactive. Tasting at the end was amazing (both bourbon and bourbon balls!) And a bucket list item...I got to dip my own bottle! Became an ambassador and now my name is on a MM barrel!

I had been wanting to do the whiskey trail for years and had an opportunity to visit MM. The farm was in the middle of nowhere but what an amazing site, Very nice visitors building and the tour of the place was top notch, complete with a tasting at the end. It was very informative and a nice mix of... More

We visited Makers Mark to pick up my wife's bottles that had been in her barrel that was reserved under the Ambassador program. We had a great tour and visit. They really do a first class job with their visitors! Our tour guide Austen was excellent. She was outgoing, informative and very personable. The bourbon tasting was very educational. The... More

We decided to visit this particular property as we had been recommended by a friend, and we were mostly certainly not disappointed. On arrival, we entered this beautiful old house, that had recently been converted into a state of the art welcome centre. We payed $9 per person which did not seem too bad. The amenities were clean and tidy.... More

We enjoyed a nice tour, and the beautiful grounds here. The tour guide was fun, and great in the tasting room. The bourbon balls are to die for!! We would recommend the drive to make this stop. It's well worth it!
