Consistently pushing boundaries
Known for consistently pushing the boundaries of whisky-making since its inception, yet rooted in a rich heritage of passion and craftsmanship, Maker's Mark has constantly reinvented tried-and-tested methods through each generation of the family-run business. The brand's signature red wax seal symbolises its dedication to handcrafting every bottle, ensuring that each sip delivers an exceptional and unparalleled taste.
The best testament to their commitment to their craft and innovation is when its founders bravely lit their 170-year-old family bourbon recipe on fire. From experimenting with its original hand-dipped packaging to understanding wood technology for optimum flavour creation and embarking on sustainable approaches to the whisky business, Maker's Mark is about breaking the mould and innovating to make its Mark.
At Maker's Mark, we believe in being boldly creative and pushing the envelope to craft something better than the best… to curate lasting memories that... honour the artistry of bartending and the sense of camaraderie within the community of tastemakers, experience seekers and cocktail aficionadosAndrew Pang, Beam Suntory Brand Ambassador
