Our great state of Kentucky is really known for two things......horse racing and bourbon. Although, I think that some of our more prominent religious affiliations would prefere that we were known for milk and parcheesi. Today our family took a trip to the Maker's Mark Distillery, located in Loretto, Kentucky. Set in a beautiful location, the distillery makes its bourbon according to some very strict standards. The bottles are sealed with the traditional red wax coating. If you are the Queen of Nice they will let you dip your own bottle after the tour.
