Make Your Mark
For true whiskey lovers, there is nothing better than taking in the Bourbon Trail and all its 'high-spirited' watering holes. If you want to visit one of the mainstays, Maker's Mark, located in Loretto, Kentucky, is a fine place to start. They have multiple tours daily, and you are literally walked through the entire process from the beginning to the end of the creation of a bottle of this fine bourbon. The most intriguing part is where you actually witness employees hand dipping each and every single bottle that will eventually hit the stores or bars near you. When they say 'hand dipped,' it is the truth. On site there is also a nicely appointed lounge where you can do a tasting, purchase various keepsakes, and even dip your very own bottle of Maker's to add to your collection. Make your mark at Maker's Mark. Cheers!
