The Maker’s Mark Bourbon that started it all and still stands tall today.

The original “Burk’s Distillery” was built in 1885 just outside of Loretto, Kentucky. T. William “Bill” Samuels bought the operation in 1953 for $35,000. Samuels wanted to make quality, so he used the sales of the existing stockpiles to finance a revamp. The first bottle of the new flagship brand “Makers Mark” was bottled in 1958 and dipped into the red sealing wax that has become the company’s trademark — making them one of the first to carve out a space in what we now call the “premium Bourbon” market. Currently owned by Beam-Suntory, members of the Samuels family still work at the company.

Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon is THE signature Whisky of Maker’s Mark. And while the oh-so-trendy crowd dabbles in spice-bombs, this dram is designed to be smooth. And that starts with a wheated mash bill (no rye) using soft red winter wheat. The barrels are rotated by hand in the warehouse on a regular schedule and — as hey say — aged “to taste, not time.” It’s even bottled to 45% ABV on site and dipped into their famous red sealing wax which is left to drip down the sides, making it one of the most recognized brands of premium Bourbon.
