Maker’s Mark® After Dark: An Unforgettable Experience for the Bourbon Lover
Next Experience: May 21

Louisville, KY, April 15, 2015 – Rising and falling temperatures are a key component of making bourbon, so there’s no better time to visit a distillery than during the changing of the seasons. Plan your goodbye to spring and make the most of the long summer days ahead by scheduling an exclusive experience at Makers Mark® for you and your fellow bourbon lovers.

The “Maker’s Mark After Dark” is a unique opportunity for a private and exclusive behind-the-scenes, guided tour of the distillery. It’s the perfect complement to bachelor parties during this upcoming wedding season, a thoughtful Father’s Day present, or simply an escape from everyday life that anyone can enjoy. The only reason you need for attending is a thirst for Kentucky’s signature beverage!

Bourbon experts will explain and show your small group the bourbon making process from grain to bottle on your guided tour of the picturesque distillery. Then, you’ll enjoy specialized bourbon tastings before dipping your very own bottle in their signature red wax. The tour culminates with Maker’s Mark® inspired cocktails and southern style appetizers inside a barrel warehouse, underneath the stunning, hand-blown glass ceiling by world renowned artist Dale Chihuly.

2015 dates are as follows: May 21, June 12, July 16, August 7, September 3, October 9 and November 6.
