Welcome to Retroman40's World!

Makers Mark

At little off the beaten path in Loretto, KY, the Marker's Mark Distillery is certainly worth the effort.   The tour is very indepth and you get to see every aspect of bourbon production from mashing to fermentation to distillation to aging to bottling (including watching the worker do the famous hand dipping in red wax).  The tour is topped off with a tasting.  Our last visit for a tour was in July 2009 however these places generally don't change much over time.  The rather large gift shop has plenty of selection of Marker's Mark themed merchandise that should satisfy any bourbon lover.  Below are some photos taken while on the tour.
