Bourbon Chase, Day 2: Maker’s Mark

29 Oct

Ooohhh…clearly I’m very behind in my blogging.  Anyway, without further ado…

And for the record, I realize these photos are not great quality, especially the ones taken indoors.  I didn’t bring my fancy new external flash : (

 

– The Maker’s Mark Distillery was the hand-off point from our team’s first van to our van.  We got there early so that we can tour a bit. –

red shutters..note the shape of the Maker’s Mark bottle carved in each of them

The sweet little covered bridge.

– Then we headed into the building where workers complete (put labels on, etc) the bottles for shipment. –

– Next, we checked out the Tasting Room for a special Maker’s Mark cocktail.  (Yes, I had one, pre-run!) –

– Then it was on to the shop. –

yum.

– Finally, we were back outside to see our van’s first runner take off. –

Go Barb!

Yep. Cheers to that!

All of that and we’re still on Day 1 of the actual run, and I won’t run my first leg for another 5 hours!  More tomorrow (promise!).

À demain,
