Unique Itineraries & Tours

New tours take whiskey fans where they’ve never gone before. This summer, Maker’s Mark launched its Star Hill Farm Experiences. These experiences allow travelers to go beyond the general distillery tours to further explore the more than 1,000 acres the distillery calls home. In the process, participants learn about sustainability, agriculture and research initiatives.

Star Hill Farm Experiences currently include three distinct, bookable experiences:

  • The Oak Experience focuses on bourbon’s connection to the American oak tree, with a visit to a white oak research forest and a tree planting.
  • The Seasonal Star Hill Farm Tour introduces guests to whatever seasonal activities are taking place on the farm at the time of their visit.
  • The Maker’s Mark Art and Design Tour looks at the entire property’s connection to art and design and how that connection complements the natural environment.

“In the past, our guests have only been able to explore a small piece of our home at Star Hill Farm,” said Amanda Humphrey, advocacy and experience manager, Star Hill Farm. “With these experiences, we’re excited to invite those interested in learning more about Maker’s Mark to see, touch and interact with the wood, wheat and water that are essential to our bourbon. Come forage for ingredients we use in bar and restaurant programs, meet the livestock that enrich our soil and call Star Hill Farm home and see the environmental research projects we have undertaken first-hand.”
