Maker’s Mark pop-up bar

Make your Mark at The ArgylE

From the deep south of the Kentucky Bourbon heartland, in the fall of 1958, Maker’s Mark® was finally available for market after six summers of aging. The first bottle was four-fifths of a quart, sold for $6.79 and, of course, was hand-dipped in red wax.

Just like the three R’s (reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic) make up those basic educational essentials we’re all so familiar with, the four W’s (water, wheat, wood and wax) are the time-honored, fundamental elements when it comes to crafting Maker’s Mark®.

Maker’s Mark is a unique and full-flavoured, hand-made Bourbon, made using the old-style sour-mash method and sealed with the iconic red wax.

In an age when production lines of 200, 300 and even 400 bottles per minute are the norm, the process of hand-dipping each bottle of Maker’s Mark®, one at a time, in hot wax, limits Maker’s Mark to no more than 125 bottles a minute.

So what’s with that red wax top on the bottle? It started with Margie Samuels heating up wax in her deep fryer and ended as one of the most iconic bottle designs in the liquor industry. It’s the red dripping wax that adorns every Maker’s Mark® bottle, and it’s still done entirely by hand today.
