LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A special line of Maker's Mark bottles pay tribute to fallen Bardstown officer Jason Ellis.

300 bottles, featuring the Bardstown Police Department badge, went on sale this weekend.

It's the only police department logo featured on a bottle of bourbon.

All proceeds for the Officer Ellis Maker's Mark bottle go to Supporting Heroes.

Bardstown police chief Rick McCubbin posted on Facebook Sunday that all the bottles have been sold.

Officer Ellis was ambushed and killed in May, while he was on his way from work.

No arrests have been made.
