The Party Source “Make Your Mark” – American Whiskey News

Maker’s Mark is celebrating both of Kentucky’s most famous industries (horse racing and bourbon) with the release of their latest commemorative bottle, honoring Triple Crown winning racehorse Justify.

Justify overcame rough weather and stiff competition to win the Triple Crown. The bottle’s green, black, and white color scheme honors the silks worn by Justify’s jockey, Mike Smith.

“Maker’s Mark has always had a strong connection with horse racing,” said Rob Samuels, eighth-generation distiller and Chief Operating Officer of Maker’s Mark Distillery. “Without the support of the thoroughbred industry in the early days when my grandparents created our bourbon, Maker’s Mark simply wouldn’t exist. We’re honored to help grow the sport we love while also commemorating a remarkable achievement in sports history.”

The Triple Crown is a hat-trick victory over all three of the year’s major horse racing events: The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes.

Maker’s Mark Limited Edition Justify Triple Crown Bottle Release
Friday, October 19th
Time: 8:00 AM
Price: $59.99 (limit 1 bottle per customer)

Special note: Maker’s Mark Breeders Cup Bottling will also be available.



While we’re highlighting this Maker’s Mark Limited Edition Release, we wanted to share with you three additional Maker’s Mark bottlings, all featuring their highly popular Maker’s Mark Private Select. In addition to our own Private Bottling, we had the opportunity to team up with two close friends of The Party Source, Pompilio’s and The Cure Starts Now, to select two entirely unique Maker’s Mark Private Select Barrels.

Each bottle of Maker’s Mark Private Select starts with a base of fully aged Maker’s Mark at cask strength. Private Select is created by adding 10 custom wood finishing staves to each barrel. It’s then aged for 9 weeks in a limestone cellar to extract a unique taste and flavor profile.

The available staves are all oak and offered in five unique finishes; Baked American Pure (American oak slowly toasted), Seared French Cuvee (French oak cooked with infrared heat), Roasted French Mocha (French oak cooked on high in a convection oven), Toasted French Spice (French oak cooked at both high and low temperatures in a convection oven), and Maker’s 46 (American oak taken from a Maker’s 46 barrel).


Maker’s Mark Private Select TPS
For this Private Select offering, we chose 3 Baked American Pure 2 staves, 3 Seared French Cuvee staves, 3 Roasted French Mocha staves and 1 Toasted French Spice stave.  This selection is a perfect marriage of French and American oak that delicately harmonizes with this wheated Bourbon. Perfect neat, on the rocks or take your favorite cocktail to the next level.


Maker’s Mark Private Select “Pomp’s Bocce Barrel”
For this Private Select offering, we teamed up with our friends at Pompilio’s, an iconic fixture here in northern Kentucky, and selected an amazing barrel of Maker’s Mark Private Select – “Pomp’s Bocce Barrel”. Together we chose 4 Seared French Cuvee staves, 4 Roasted French Mocha staves and 2 Toasted French Spice staves. This is an excellent representation of Maker’s Mark and delivers something special. Both The Party Source and Pompilio’s couldn’t be happier to offer this collaboration to you.


Maker’s Mark Private Select “TCSN with TPS”
For this Private Select offering, we teamed up with our friends at The Cure Starts Now, an amazing charity that helps children who are battling cancer and finding a cure. This Maker’s Mark Private Select – “TCSN with TPS” was created with 1 Baked American Pure stave, 1 Seared French Cuvee stave, 2 Maker’s Mark 46 staves, 4 Roasted French Mocha staves and 2 Toasted French Spice staves. This is a great barrel with a great cause behind it and should be a selection on your bar at home.

Each barrel and bottling is unique and a great representation of Maker’s Mark’s commitment to creating a truly individual experience for you. Pick up all three for and taste for yourself.
