The tradition of making fine Bourbon whiskey runs deep at Heaven Hill Distilleries. Founded in Bardstown by the five Shapira brothers shortly after Prohibition, Heaven Hill has become the largest independent family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits. Famous as a distiller of world-renowned Bourbons such as Evan Williams, Elijah Craig and Old Fitzgerald, Heaven Hill is home to the world’s second largest holding of aging Kentucky whiskey, representing over 16% of the world’s future supply.

Heaven Hill’s new state-of-the-art Bourbon Heritage Center was designed to provide visitors with the ultimate educational and entertainment experience in the making and the history of what was designated “America’s Native Spirit” by a 1964 act of Congress. The Bourbon Heritage Center features high-tech interactive exhibits about Bourbon history and Bourbon making, as well as an orientation theater, a unique barrel-shaped tasting room and a gift shop. At the Bourbon Heritage Center, you can enjoy the “Portrait of Heaven Hill” movie, visit a working Rickhouse, and learn about the romance and lore of Bourbon. The Bourbon Hosts will lead you on a guided tasting of Heaven Hill’s fine Bourbons, and you can create your own personalized bottle to take home as a keepsake.

MAKERS MARK DISTILLERY
3350 Burks Springs Road
Loretto, Kentucky
270.865.2099
www.makersmark.com

Distinctive brown paint and red shutters of the historic wood frame buildings greet visitors to the distillery on the banks of Hardin's Creek near the town of Loretto. Established in 1805 as a gristmill/distillery, it is the nation's oldest working distillery on its original site and has been named a National Historic Landmark.

Experience a step back in time on a stroll through the buildings and around the grounds on a guided tour. Maker's Mark is one the smallest distilleries, crafting Bourbon in
batches of less than 19 barrels. The polished copper still adds bright contrast to the aging rustic wood of the still house. Maker's Mark proclaims proudly that its Bourbon is hand-made at every step, from selecting the grains to hand-dipping the bottles in red wax. Visitors get to hand-dip their own bottle of Maker's Mark in warm red wax when making a purchase in the gift shop. No bourbon sales on Sunday.

possesses an outward appearance as simple and unadorned as the traditional distilling methods used inside.

be able to see our unique 40-foot high column still, watch new bourbon being poured into hand crafted oak barrels and stroll through our timber warehouses.
