I've been selling Maker's Mark for over 10 years.
I can tell you they have been wrestling with the limited supply issue for over 8 of those
Years. I've met Bill Samuels and I know for a fact Missouri gets more than a normal allow allocation because Missouri is a major Oak barrel producer for whiskey in general.
Since the beginning Makers had only ONE STILL. I can every still has its own personality.
I don't know the exact year, but within the last 5 they finally constructed the 2nd still to keep up with demand. In that process, they recreated the same dents and imperfections as the original still.
They have a staff on ten people to hand dip each bottle.
There are sever regions of the USA rejoicing this decision.
Don't act like you're not impressed...
