WHAT:   The Maker’s Mark Distillery is delighted to share that Star Hill Provisions™, the distillery’s own fine Kentucky fare café, will be expanding to serve visitors in a newly remodeled fast-casual restaurant on its historic campus. Led by Chef Newman Miller, the co-owner and executive chef of Bardstown, Kentucky’s renowned Harrison-Smith House, Star Hill Provisions™ will be located in the beautifully renovated Distiller’s Home, adjacent to the recently unveiled Maker’s Mark Cellar. Chef Miller and his team will offer true farm-to-table dishes with locally sourced ingredients and, whenever possible, with produce and proteins supplied by distillery employees who operate small farms outside of their work at Maker's Mark. Star Hill Provisions will also offer handcrafted, seasonal cocktails on-site for the first time in Maker’s Mark history. 

 WHEN:   Official opening – April 5th, 2017   Once open, service will be Wednesday-Sunday 11:30am–4:30pm

 WHERE:  Maker’s Mark Distillery   3350 Burks Spring Road    Loretto, KY 40037

WHY:  In addition to continuing to craft the great tasting bourbon his grandfather created, Rob Samuels, 8th Generation Whisky Maker & Chief Operating Officer, strives to make Maker’s Mark the most culturally rich and enduring home of any spirits brand in the world. Delicious food and bourbon have always been an integral part of the Maker’s Mark legacy, so the decision to create a premium fast-casual restaurant at the first distillery in America to be recognized as a National Historic Landmark was a perfect fit.

 ABOUT:  Chef Newman Miller is originally from Washington Co., Ky. and attended Sullivan University’s culinary program. After graduation, he worked at the iconic Brown Hotel (Ky.) and at Cummins Engine (Ky.). After a brief stint in Scotland, Newman moved to Chicago for a short time before returning to open the Harrison-Smith House in Bardstown, Ky. Today, he is proud to be the first chef-in-residence leading the culinary program at Maker’s Mark Distillery. 

 Star Hill Provisions™ is leading the charge on all things delicious, many of Chef Miller’s dishes have been expertly created to pair well with Star Hill Provisions’ specialty Maker’s Mark® cocktails. While the menu will change seasonally, Chef Miller and his team will put their own spin on Kentuckian/Southern favorites such as the Kentucky Hot Browns (a delicious sandwich created in Louisville), Benedictine sandwiches (a regional riff on a classic tea sandwich brightened with pickled red onion) and Burgoo (a celebrated Kentucky dish made with white beans and locally sourced country ham) and more. Each day, a new plated lunch special will be available as well. Equally as delicious and exciting are Chef Miller’s contributions to new Maker’s Mark® cocktail offerings. In keeping with the character of a seasonal menu, cocktails will rotate to highlight the freshest ingredients while classics like Old Fashions and Manhattans will be available year-round.
