"Walking into the Maker’s Mark Distillery, I was bombarded by the comprehensive sensuality of the space. The sights, smells, and sounds of the distillery meshed together like few places do. The collaborative aroma of bourbon and oak distinguish themselves from the rest. My intention for Ol’ Factory was to use the bourbon-soaked oak barrel staves to reproduce the smell of the distilling process. As the viewer moves in to view the organic display of the Maker’s Mark signature red wax, one cannot help but notice the bold oak fragrance complimented by the sweet trace of bourbon."
