The Samuels family has been making bourbon here since 1953. It is the only operating distillery in the country that is a National Historic Landmark.
The distillery is one of the smallest distilleries in the US with a total of 30 people working with production of Maker's Mark.
They produce 18 barrels per day, which might be compared with 700 for some of the larger distilleries.
They use wheat instead of rye, currently the ownly commerical distiller to make this substitution. The history of the Samuels family can be traced back to T.W Samuels, who began making bourbon back in 1844. The Samuels inital 'S' and the generation that first began producing at Star Hill (IV) compose the trademark for the company.
