Maker's Mark is the only bourbon distillery producing just one Brand of Bourbon. The original 'premium' bourbon, Maker's Mark has been lovingly built by three generations of the Samuels family. However, the family's distilling roots stretch back eleven generations. Aged for a year longer than the four year minimum it is no overstatement to say that Bill Samuels Senior established the premium bourbon category. Maker's Mark is one of the few American whiskeys to be spelled 'whisky' without an 'e'. While the majority of all other American distillers spell theirs with the 'e', Maker's mark spelling without the 'e' celebrates the Samuels' family's Scottish heritage.
