Bravo’s Top Chef – Thursdays at 8/7c

At Maker’s Mark, taste is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we’re thrilled to have paired with Bravo’s Top Chef for its Kentucky-centric season. The award-winning hit show even taped its bourbon episode straight from the Maker’s Mark Distillery.

“Bourbon, Barrels and Burgoo” aired December 13, but you can find it at So, host a watch party of your own and find all the recipes you need right here. Prepare a featured dish to savor while you watch. And, wash it down, of course, with a signature Maker’s Mark® cocktail. But please, use a napkin before you share it with us at #TopChef #MarkoftheMaker.
