Maker's Mark
Maker's Mark is a small-batch bourbon whiskey made in Loretto, Kentucky, by Beam Suntory. It is bottled at 90 U.S. proof and sold in identifiable squarish bottles sealed with red wax. They offer tours, and is part of the American Whiskey Trail and the Kentucky Maker's Mark's origin began when T. William "Bill" Samuels Sr., bought the "Burks' Distillery" in Loretto, Kentucky, for $35,000 on October 1, 1953. Production began in 1954, and the first run was bottled in 1958 under the brand's characteristic dipped red wax seal.

Maker's Mark is aged for around six years, being bottled and marketed when the company's tasters decide that it is ready. Maker's Mark is one of the few distillers to rotate the barrels from the upper to the lower levels of the aging storage warehouse during the aging process to even out the differences in temperature during the process. The top floors are unprotected by the greatest temperature changes during the year, so rotating the barrels guarantee that the bourbon in all the barrels have the same quality and taste.

Maker's Mark is sold in identifiable squarish bottles that are sealed with red wax. T. William Samuels' wife, Marjorie Samuels, gave the whiskey its identity, made its label, and thought up the wax dipping that gives the bottle its unique look.
