    Here is what likely was the first 'liquor store' in the US. The local distillery formerly sold bourbon by the jar here!

    Favorite thing: This distillery get's my award for one of the two prettiest of bourbon distilleries in the US (I've seen them all, and several that are closed). This is a photo of the 'Barrel House' or the storage for resting barrels of whiskey.

    Favorite thing: ...Visit the distillery. Don't worry you don't have to drink bourbon to enjoy this!
    Maker’s Mark is the only operating distillery in America to be designated a National Historic Landmark. Do we sound proud or what? Originally built in 1805 as a gristmill distillery, it became the home of Maker’s Mark in 1953. Today, it is the oldest operating distillery on its original site.

    Fondest memory: I must say my fondest memory of Loretto is having breakfast with Bill Samuels, Jr., owner of Maker's Mark distillery.
