Made from a mash of corn, wheat, and malted barley,
Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky (spelled without an "e"
to honor the Samuels family's Scottish heritage) manages to marry large-scale,
global production with a rich tradition in a way that few other distilleries
can rival. The actual "makers" of Maker's Mark still rotate the
barrels in the distillery's warehouses, bottle the whisky and dip the bottles
in wax all by hand.
On October 1, 1953, William Samuels Sr. purchased Burks
Distillery, which was situated in Loretto, Kentucky, for $35,000. Five years
later, the distillery released the first bottles of Maker's Mark Bourbon
Whisky, which featured the distillery's distinctive red wax seal. The
distillery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and
was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1980.
