Bill Samuels Sr.’s quest to create Maker’s Mark® began with his only copy of the family’s trusted, 170-year-old recipe. The one the sixth-generation distiller promptly set on fire, of course.
After accidentally burning a set of drapes in the process, Bill experimented with different flavoring grains, searching for a mash bill all his own. To save years of aging time, Bill baked several loaves of bread with various grain combinations instead of distilling them. His quick thinking not only saved time but also led him to swap out the traditional rye grain that is commonly used in bourbons, for soft, red winter wheat. This replaced the hot bite of rye with the delicate sweetness that Maker’s® is known for today.
You will see the signature red wax on the Maker’s bourbon and other products as well. One of the sweetest and our favorite are Maker’s Mark Gourmet Bourbon Chocolates. Bourbon balls have been a Kentucky specialty for nearly 100 years, and Maker’s is one of our best sellers.
Maker’s Mark Gourmet Chocolates are an elegant gift for family, friends and business associates. These fine, handcrafted candies are made from an old family recipe, have a creme center laced with a generous touch of Makers Mark Bourbon Whisky and finished in dark chocolate with a half pecan on top.
