An exclusive behind the scenes after hours tour? Check. Hand dip your own bottle of Maker’s Mark in the signature red wax? Check. Special bourbon tastings, southern style appetizers, and cocktails? Check, check and check.  The Maker’s Mark After Dark tour includes all that and more. If you haven’t experienced this exclusive experience you’re missing out, but have no worries because we’ve got you covered.

Launching earlier this year in June, Maker’s Mark After Dark has become extremely popular.  While most of our tours occur during the day, this one-of-a-kind experience takes place at the Maker’s Mark distillery after the doors to the public close.  You’ll hop aboard a customized Mint Julep Tours vehicle and be transported to the beautiful distillery located in Loretto, Kentucky.


Things will start off with a guided tour of the distillery showcasing the entire bourbon making process, from grain to bottle. After the tour you’ll head to a barrel warehouse for a special bourbon tasting underneath the stunning, “Spirit of the Maker” hand-blown glass ceiling done by world renowned artist, Dale Chihuly.  The evening is capped off with some Maker’s Mark inspired cocktails and southern style appetizers before you hand-dip your very own bottle of Maker’s Mark in the signature red wax to take home as a souvenir.

Tickets are $179 a person and the remaining dates in 2014 are September 19th, October 3rd and November 7th.  The tour departs from the Galt House in downtown Louisville at 1:15pm and returns at 7:30.
