Top Chef  Meets Maker's® Mark

Recently, we had the pleasure of forming a partnership with Bravo’s Top Chef, the award-winning hit TV series. It was an honor and a thrill to be named its official spirit and have an episode filmed at our distillery in Loretto, Ky. The Maker’s® episode (“Bourbon, Barrels and Burgoo,” episode 2) has since aired, but you can find it at BravoTV.com. Season 16 of Bravo’s Top Chef continues Thursdays at 8/7c.

Learn all about the history and cast of characters behind Maker's Mark Bourbon and the time-honored process required to make it, from a breakthrough bread-baking experiment to the maverick marketing that helped elevate an upstart bourbon brand.

Making Maker's Mark.

The Maker's Mark you know today is made just as it was when we filled our first bottle. This can feel like an old-fashioned, inefficient process at times, but we wouldn't have it any other way. See how it's done and what goes into making our newer expressions of Maker's® below.
