The water tower in Lebanon is about to get a new mural that should make it very popular on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The tower will be graced by a bottle of bourbon, making it look like the world’s largest Maker’s Mark pour. The city’s 135-foot water tower will be getting a mural by internationally recognized muralist Eric Henn, who will paint it to look like the neck of a gigantic bottle, complete with signature red wax, is pouring bourbon straight down.

The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission commissioned the mural to highlight that Marion County is the home of Maker’s Mark Distillery, the county’s top tourist attraction and just eight miles away. They anticipate it will be a popular stop for tourists to take selfies or photos with.

“The water tower will be so unique that visitors will go home and remember ‘that water tower’ in Lebanon, Kentucky,” said Nena Olivier, executive director of the tourism commission.
