Makers Mark Whisky, Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Handmade. Anytime youre in the neighborhood, stop by and visit us at our distillery, near Loretto, Kentucky. This beautifully restored home of Maker's Mark is a designated Kentucky and National Historic Landmark. Maker's Mark, America's handmade bourbon whisky, all started because my grandfather Bill Samuels, Sr., a sixth-generation Kentucky distiller, didn't care for the whisky his family made. So in 1953 he burned the family recipe-literally-and started over. His taste vision was a soft, rich, creamy, full-bodied yet balanced bourbon. Meanwhile, my grandmother, Margie, was busy designing the bottle you're holding. In fact, it was her idea to hand-dip every bottle in red wax. To this day, making Maker's Mark-in small quantities, a little at a time is still a family affair. Enjoy. - Rob Samuele, Grandson of the Founders. We make our bourbon carefully.
