Maker’s Mark®: A Taste of Heritage

On Friday, December 6, at Liquor Barn Springhurst, please join us for Maker’s Mark: A Taste of Heritage. These unique, one-hour events are your opportunity to hear, see and savor the true heritage of the Maker’s Mark brand. Chairman Emeritus Bill Samuels, Jr., will provide a glimpse into how this little distillery in Loretto became world-renowned for its rich, full-flavored bourbon. Guests will not only hear about the brand’s origins. They’ll also get to see rare memorabilia from Star Hill Farm, including the very first bottle of Maker’s Mark ever produced.

Chief Distillery Officer and Grandson of the Founders Rob Samuels will then take guests on an exclusive tasting through four all-new Maker’s Mark Private Select® offerings. Each of these rare bourbons, crafted with help from bourbon societies across Kentucky, highlights a distinctive flavor profile achieved through the Private Select stave selection process. And you can be among the first to try the delicious results, plus pick up a bottle to take home.

Finish off the experience by sampling inventive fare crafted by chefs from the LEE Initiative, which focuses on improving diversity and equality in the restaurant industry. Portions of the ticket price for these events goes directly to the LEE Initiative and their worthwhile efforts.
