Maker's Mark Proves That Bourbon Should be Green

Full disclosure: I am a Maker's Mark ambassador, having passed a long rigorous testing that involved consuming large quantities over long stretches, small quantities over short stretches and vice versa. I am pleased to report to Trend Hunter readers that the Maker's Mark distillery in Loretto, Kentucky is going as green as possible while still maintaining their standards of high quality using locally-grown corn and wheat from a 30-mile radius, reduced trucking carbon emissions.

Maker's Mark only uses 200 of the 620 acres of land they own. The remainder of the land is set aside for conservation and public use. Maker's Mark is unique in that they recycle the byproducts from distilling their fine golden brew.

The system they use takes the grain and water and makes it usable for generating energy.
