Maker’s Mark

Maker’s Mark is a small-batch bourbon whiskey produced in Loretto, Kentucky, by Beam Suntory. It is bottled at 90 U.S. proof and sold in distinctively squarish bottles sealed with red wax.

There’s a well-known story of the origins of Maker’s Mark: after prohibition, Bill Samuels went to his father and suggested that they revisit the family bourbon recipe to try to improve upon it. The response: “No, thank you, the American customer is thirsty and they will drink what we give them.” This lead to Samuels burning the family whiskey recipe and making his own whiskey, Maker’s Mark.
