2/2010 News from Maker’s Mark

A couple weeks back we found a very interesting note in our mail box.  It was carried the signature of Bill Samuels, who we had interviewed in December.  The note begins, “Kevin- As a respected whiskey critic….”  Well, right there he basically has us.  The note mentioned that the master distiller at Maker’s Mark was working on something new.

This is interesting because it adds credence to this possibility—Maker’s Mark, a company that is known for producing just one Bourbon whiskey, now is edging toward bringing out a second product.  During the interview, Bill had hinted that something was in the works, which he referred to as Maker’s “on steroids.”  We’re guessing it might be a cask strength version of Maker’s.  We hope to get hold of Bill and find out what he is up to.  More news to come…
