Making Your Own at Maker's

Understanding Maker’s Mark Private Select

Maker’s Mark has created five proprietary staves that our customers, your favorite bars, restaurants, and liquor stores, can choose from to create their own perfect version of Maker’s Mark.

On this day at the Whisky LIVE, the Distillery comes to you!

For the first time outside of Kentucky – You will get to go through that experience!

Dive deep into the wood and learn about each of the five stave options and what flavors each can bring to Maker’s Mark. Then you will get to create a blend of those stave-finished bourbons to enhance what you love most about Maker’s.

Experience area hosted by Jane Bowie, Head of Quality Control and Tasting Manager of Maker’s Mark, and manager of the Maker’s Select Program at the distillery!
