We're proud of our unique and full flavoured handmade bourbon.
History
Our president, Bill Samuels, Jr., comes from a long line of bourbon makers which started way back in 1780. About 1840, the Samuels family actually started to make a living from distilling and the recipe was passed down six generations and remained unchanged until it got to Bill's father. Bill Samuels, Sr., had his own idea of how a whisky should taste, so he abandoned the family recipe and set out to create his own. If he was going to make a bourbon and put his name on it, he wanted one he could be proud of. And that meant a bourbon that was more pleasing to the palate. So in 1853, he bought an abandoned Victorian distillery (now fully restored and a National Historic Landmark) in picturesque Happy Hollow, Kentucky, and set to work on making his dream a reality. He developed a new recipe based on locally grown grains. The most unique thing he die, however, was replace the traditional bourbon flavouring grain of fry with red winter wheat, which produced a much gentler taste. Once the re
Vinification Details
Maker's Mark is one of the only bourbon distilleries that makes just on brand of bourbon. We're pretty easygoing about things, but when it comes to our recipe, that's one thing you'll see us get passionate about. We use pure, iron-free limestone spring water exclusively. Not city, well or river water. Our source is a ten acre limestone spring-fed lake at the distillery. Rather than the traditional Rye, we use yellow corn and red winter wheat from specially selected small-farm cooperatives, all of which are located within the limestone geology near the distillery. This wheat gives our whisky its soft, mellow taste. Our date rollermill is the key to preparing our grain for cooking. While some distillers think this method is too slow and produces a lower yield, it's just fine for us. The slow process does not scorch the grain like a hammermill can. We are among the few remaining bourbon distillers that propagate their own yeast for fermentation with cultures that we can trace back to the

Hits the mark!

This is my go to bourbon for mixing or drinking straight. Occasionally I want something really special and go for a small batch producer for a treat, but this hits the mark most of the time.

Lacking nose

I've got Woodford Reserve and Maker's Mark side by side. They're both good but for me the Maker's Mark smells mostly of alcohol while Woodford Reserve has a lovely, bourbony bouquet.

The best Borbon going

This was suggested to me by a barman as a substitute for JD. In fact, that's like substituting a Rolls Royce for a Mini - Maker's Mark is simply the smoothest, most mellow Bourbon I've ever tasted. Just so, so nice - and dangerously easy to drink.

The best

A smooth sipping bourbon that is still a whisky. Friends introduced us to this and we drink it as often as we dare now. Perfectly smooth. If you haven't tried it before you won't be disappointed!
