Explore the Barrel JourneyMaker's Mark barrel designation.

A bourbon with your name on it. Literally.

All new Ambassadors are assigned a barrel of Maker's Mark®. Your name will be engraved on a placard which will be affixed to a newly filled barrel. Once your barrel has finished aging, one-of-a-kind Ambassador bottles from that batch will be available for purchase with your name on the label.

Barrel dedication.

You'll soon receive a certificate with your barrel number on it. You can use this to track the age of your barrel on the Ambassador site.

Barrel updates.

As your barrel ages over five to seven years, the distillery will send updates explaining where your barrel is in its maturation process and what’s happening inside it.
