Our take on Kentucky, Bourbon and Mint Juleps
Loretto is ironically in a dry county. The Samuels Family was drawn to this place because it was home of the Burk Distillery originally built in 1889. A limestone filtered spring resides on the property providing water and the appropriate mineral content for bourbon. This is where Marker's Mark barrel ages its product 6 to 7 years, but it is deemed ready for consumption when a sample from the barrel tastes just right. It's our favorite sour mash to toast the run for the roses.
