Maker's Mark, Loretto

In the woods of Kentucky, Maker's Mark produces small batches of bourbon whiskey. Recognizable by bottles sealed with red wax, the company distills its spirits at 45 percent alcohol by volume (90 proof) using red winter wheat instead of rye. Take a regular tour of the distillery and taste its bourbon, or book an extended tour, where you'll witness the inner workings of crafting this spirit (and you'll get a set of wax-dipped rock glasses as a souvineer). There are plenty of stairs to climb, so dress comfortably. Check out the gift shop, where you can get items such as bourbon chocolates, fleece sweaters, cigars, and coffee.
