You can enjoy the ultimate Kentucky bourbon getaway. The Samuels House in Nelson County is owned and operated by the founding family of the Maker's Mark Distillery. The 200-year-old home is now accepting visitors who want to take a trip back in time to the birthplace of bourbon.

Rob Samuels, an eighth-generation whisky maker and managing director of Maker's Mark, takes us inside the Samuels House and shares how it will also help good causes in Kentucky.
