    The Samuels crew have nailed this. The heritage tour for Ambassadors is a best in class customer appreciation experience. You will learn why Maker's is Makers

    Yes, they're the most famous and visited, but they do a great tour and the site has a lot of history to it.

    Been here 5+ times
    The idea of sticking your finger in the fermenting tank might sound gross at first, but make sure to try a couple of the tanks to see how the mash changes as it goes through fermentation.

    Disney Land of distilleries is an accurate description of this place. They represent the brand well more than bourbon in general. Must go if you like Makers like me.

    We have travelled all over country, toured many distilleries and breweries. We were Disappointed that you need to sign up for an hour tour to get samples! Other then that, beautiful spot!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Great tour, kid-friendly. (have a special place for them to sit during tasting). Picturesque. Distillery shuts down do a month in early summer. You can still do tour; stills are empty. Spotty cel svc.

    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.

    Ask for a sip of the secret un-aged version of the whisky, technically not bourbon at this point.

    The tour is free, and the guides are knowledgeable about their product, and extremely friendly. Make sure to try the new Maker's 46, and dip a bottle while you're there!

    Try a Maker's-rita. 1 part Maker's Mark, 1/3 part triple sec, 1 1/3 sweet and sour. Squeeze large orange wedge, shake and serve over the rocks.

    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.
