A great whisky, a little publicity and well... you know the rest of the story.
As a result of the story, we’re getting calls from people all over the country who are “suddenly” interested in buying Maker’s Mark.
And as much as we’d like to accommodate all the inquiring public, we’re concerned that we can’t. Quality is what makes Maker’s Mark special. And if we made much more than we did, well, it just wouldn’t be the Maker’s Mark you read about.
If our special bourbon whisky isn’t available where you live, you might need a little perseverance. If your local retailer doesn’t have it, he can order it for you.
Or, if you’d prefer, write us at Maker’s Mark. We’ll get you started on the right avenue toward finding this one-of-a-kind whisky.
Rob’s first attempt at copywriting. And one of the best holiday ads we’ve ever run.
As inspiring to bourbon drinkers as it was to bourbon makers.
Guns, outlaws and bourbon. The kind of things that make memories truly special.
True story. Great ad.
One man started it all. And we’re not talking about Mao Tse-Tung.
Some people just don’t understand great advertising.

Maker’s Mark isn’t tricked out with bling or pyrotechnics. We’re just a bourbon that’s handmade slowly from start to finish. And even though we don’t make it to please the masses, we seem to always draw a crowd of fans who appreciate a full-flavored bourbon that sings instead of screams.
While many are all about delivering a ferocious kick, Maker’s Mark handcrafts our bourbon from start to finish. Hand-making our bourbon sometimes leads to packaging fouls, but it also leads to a whisky that’s full-flavored yet approachable for people who don’t usually like whisky.
We always felt one handcrafted recipe for Maker’s Mark was plenty. But some people wanted something bigger, bolder - more of what they loved about our bourbon. So we created Maker’s 46. As to whether or not it’s Maker’s Mark, we recommend years of repeated tastings.
