makers mark whiskey

An iconic bourbon - famed worldwide for its smooth, rich taste and hand-crafted from grain to glass...

The Samuels family have been bourbon makers since 1780 and the family recipe was unchanged for six generations until 1953 when ambitious Bill Samuels Snr set about creating a far smoother whiskey.

He bought a Victorian distillery (now a historic landmark) and in a groundbreaking move replaced the traditional rye with red winter wheat to give the finished bourbon a far softer, gentler and more approachable taste. It proved an instant success.

Today Bill Samuels Jr presides over the family business and his distinctive red wax sealed bottles (an idea the family took from old cognac bottles) can be seen in the most stylish bars from Boston to Bangkok. Its vanilla-edged finish make it a fantastic base for many classic cocktails.

And if you're wondering about the 'SIV' mark on the bottle... the 'S' stands for the Samuels family and the "IV" is the Roman numeral 'four', and signifies that this is a Samuels fourth-generation Maker's Mark.
