Handmade from start to finish...
Maker’s Mark® is handmade from start to finish at the historic distillery in Loretto, Ky. Made with red winter wheat for a softer, front-of-tongue finish, the bourbon is then aged to taste, ensuring a consistency and quality that make Maker’s Mark®… well, Maker’s Mark. . Each and every bottle of Maker's® is still hand-dipped in signature red wax at the distillery, just like Bill would have wanted.

Did you know...
T. William "Bill" Samuels Sr. (first owner of Makers Mark, Oct 1953) received considerable assistance and recipes from cult/unicorn distillery Stitzel-Weller owner #PappyVanWinkle.
So that his new bourbon would have a softer taste, Bill created his recipe with gentle red winter wheat as the flavouring grain instead of the traditional rye which most other bourbons use.
Another little known fact: Bill's wife, Marjorie "Margie" Samuels, gave the whiskey its name, drew the label, and thought up the distinctive red wax dip. Each bottle is hand-dipped in a signature red wax, meaning no two are exactly alike.
Makers was introduced to the American market in 1959. In the 60's and 70's it was advertised with the catch-phrase "It tastes expensive... and it is." Thankfully... we sell it at $44.99 Every. Single. Day.
