Makers Mark Bourbon Whiskey 45% Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey.
A panel of tasters select barrels at different stages of maturation and balance them to create the consistent, smooth taste of Maker’s Mark Bourbon (a process referred to as “balancing”).
Giving a personal touch that is truly reflective of a brand where people, not machines, control the quality of the product.
The legend of Makers Mark Bourbon dates back to 1784. When Robert Samuels, a Scottish-Irish Immigrant, arrived in Kentucky and started making whisky for himself and a few close friends.
T.W. Samuels, Robert’s grandson, erected the family’s first “commercial” distillery in 1840.
Where the first family recipe was distilled and distributed by the next three generations of Samuels.
