The Pilgrimage to Loretto

Sandy took the day off yesterday, and met me at the airport. After he picked up his tux, we drove the hour and a half or thereabouts down to Loretto (via lunch at the Old Talbott's Tavern, on which more later) to visit the Maker's Mark Distillery.

They make a big deal out of registered Maker's Mark Ambassadors coming to visit, which was a lot of fun! The tour guide read a proclamation and pinned a medal on me, in front of the whole tour group.

They don't offer tastes of the whisky, but they do give everyone a chocolate bourbon ball at the end of the tour. It's OK; I know what Maker's Mark tastes like! But I really enjoyed the distillery smells, which were mostly the brewing smell that's similar to a beer brewery or a scotch distillery.
