Maker’s Mark is offering a late-night take on distillery tourism.
The “Maker’s Mark After Dark” program offers private, behind-the-scenes, guided tours of the distillery during evening hours. It’s intended for bachelor, a Father’s Day present, or “simply an escape from everyday life that anyone can enjoy,” according to a press release.
Bourbon experts will explain and show the bourbon-making process from grain to bottle. Then guests will enjoy specialized bourbon tastings before dipping their very own bottle in Maker’s Mark signature red wax.
The tour culminates with Maker’s Mark-inspired cocktails and southern-style appetizers inside a barrel warehouse, underneath the hand-blown glass ceiling by artist Dale Chihuly.
The 2015 “Maker’s Mark After Dark” dates are as follows: May 21, June 12, July 16, August 7, September 3, October 9 and November 6.
