LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A special bottle of Maker's Mark Bourbon is honoring a slain Bardstown police officer.

Only 300 bottles paying tribute to Officer Jason Ellis were made.

Proceeds will go to Supporting Heroes, a group that helps the families of fallen police officers and firefighters.

Jason Ellis was killed over Memorial Day weekend on his way home from work.

The Bardstown police department says he was ambushed.

His killer still hasn't been caught.
