Our first travel blog is about Makers Mark Distillery in Loretto, KY. Makers Mark just happens to be the only handmade straight bourbon whiskey in the entire US. However, on the bottle they spell it as WHISKY without the E. Bert points out that it might be that they are showcasing our states abbreviation KY. It was an interesting tour.
Off we go...
We learned that Mr. Samuels purchased the distillery land especially because of the 15-16 acre limestone lake. This lake water is used for every single bottle of Makers Mark. Unfortunately we were not allowed to see the lake. There was plenty more to see though.
First sight is an old firetruck and gas pump.
