To all my dedicated readers … start saving your cash, I know what I want for Christmas.
Maker’s Mark was chosen to be one of the “Boundary-Pushing Gifts and Experiences” in the 83rd Edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. Here’s what for:
MAKER’S MARK MASTER DISTILLER EXPERIENCE
Any whisky aficionado will tell you Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky is perfection in amber. As Master Distillers for a day, you and a friend will have an all-access VIP experience like no other, with Master Distiller Kevin Smith as your host. You will participate in the unique whisky-making process step by step. This gift experience includes a two-bottle memento of the rarest Maker’s Mark bottles ever: Two golden bottles will be etched with your likeness and dipped in gold wax with 24-kt. gold flecks. You’ll also get to hand dip six of your own 375ml Maker’s Mark bottles in signature red wax and take them home. The experience includes luxury accommodations in Louisville and a gourmet dinner hosted by Bill Samuels Jr. (the top dog at Maker’s Mark).
