Foursquare Tips

  • Try 46. It's made with French oak sticks which are left to age in the bourbon for 2 months. 94 proof but very smooth.
  • You gotta dip your own bottle...no questions asked.
  • Great tour! Tasting + wax dipping in the gift shop is lots of fun.
  • Ask for a sip of the secret un-aged version of the whisky, technically not bourbon at this point.
  • Good tour, good bourbon and you can dip your own bottle!
  • A beautiful place to visit, but remember to check-in from Loretto (and NOT while driving!) Cellular coverage is spotty at best at the distillery.
  • Tour is no longer free. $7 per adult and worth every penny. Personable tour guides. Up close tour. Don't forget your bourbon tour passport stamp!
  • Awesome tour. Hospitality all around. Highly recommend going here. The road in is a bit hairy, but not too bad. Definitely budget a lot for the gift shop. Lots of things to buy.
  • Dip your own bottle in the signature red wax.
  • Hand dip your own bottle! Cell phone service doesn't work here.
  • No longer free and an outrageously overpriced gift shop. You've been warned.
  • Not free anymore! $ 7 per person
  • Be sure to adopt your own barrel!
  • Love the history of Maker's Mark. The wife of the owner had the ideas for the style of the bottle and the dipping of the bottle. Great tour and tasting with Roy Lee!
  • Leah is the best tour guide! Make sure you taste the mash.
  • The 46 is to die for
  • Awesome! We'll be back in a few years when another barrel cures!
  • If there is a heritage tour available, reserve a spot ahead of time and do it! It is led by a member of the Samuels family, and different from a standard distillery tour in the Bourbon Trail.
  • Best check in ever
  • Buy a bottle and dip in Makers Mark signature wax yourself. The Best Bourbon in the Midwest.
