Maker’s fans, mark your calendars. Starting May 1st, Maker’s Mark is releasing a limited edition commemorative bottle to celebrate American Pharoah, one of the greatest racehorses in history. In 2015, American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes, and the Breeder’s Cup Classic. This bottle comes just in time for the Kentucky Derby, which is as synonymous to Kentucky as bourbon.
Maker’s limited edition bottle retails for $74.99. Remember, this is a 1L bottling. I know a few Maker’s collectors who are itching to get their hands on this one. Commemorative bottles from the company are just that – different bottles. The whisky is the same Maker’s you find everywhere.
