VIP Nighttime Experience at Star Hill Farm

VIP night

Join us for an intimate VIP Nighttime Experience at Star Hill Farm - home of Maker's Mark Distillery. To begin, you'll enjoy a garden-fresh mocktail and a light bite in our Innovation Garden pergola overlooking the Distillery. Then a bourbon specialist will take you on an inside look at how we craft our bourbon on an exclusive VIP tour and tasting around our Distillery. Enjoy some after-hours shopping in the gift shop before heading off for some cocktails and amuse bouche in our Lakeside Tasting Room.

This LEED-Certified building embraces the natural elements of Star Hill Farm and looks out at the Limestone-filtered lake, where every drop of Maker's begins. In route to dinner, you'll get the chance to see our apiary, pastures, Oak repository, forests, and Limestone mushroom quarry. During growing season, we will stop off at the Innovation Garden to pick some final fresh ingredients for the dinner. Once seated at Star Hill Provisions, the chef and the team will treat you to a curated, 3-course culinary and cocktail experience - many of the ingredients will be grown and harvested here at Star Hill Farm.

This experience is priced for up to 6 guests (an additional charge of $350/person for a 7th or 8th guest).
