Loretto, KY would be just another wide spot in the road. But the Samuel's family has made it more famous as the home of Maker's Mark Bourbon! The distillery is on the US list of historic places.

After visiting all U.S. distilleries and tasting some bourbon from each distillery (you cannot taste when you visit but you can buy a bourbon at pubs in Kentucky) I believe there are other bourbons that are a bit better than Maker's Mark. MM is known to be smooth. This comes from the wheat used as a grain.

Yet I do agree this is one of the prettiest distilleries to visit!

It is sure difficult to get to -- but just follow signs.

    That sure is a small liquor store. Certainly an old distillery - worth the pride:-), I hope they don't serve their bourbon in a jar ..
