For the past 200 hundred years or so, our distillery has been located at 3350 Burks Spring Rd. in Loretto, Ky., but for some reason the street name pops up in many GPS systems as "Burkes Spring" Rd. So, if you’re planning on finding us with the help of your trusty GPS, you might have to type in an extra e between the k and the s.
Also, if your GPS insists on trying to take you to our business office on Dutchmans Lane in Louisville, Ky., or to the Maker’s Mark® Bourbon Lounge on S. 4th Street, just ignore it and use the turn-by-turn directions to our distillery below!
