LORETTO, Ky. (WTVQ) – Maker’s Mark is launching a direct delivery service in January called Whisky Drop, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
The paper reports an announcement by managing director Rob Samuels, to the brand’s Ambassadors, saying the membership service, “will be your chance to have some of our most exclusive bourbons delivered right to your door, every few months. From ultra-rare Maker’s Mark Private Selection expressions to the latest offerings from our Wood Finishing Series, The Whisky Drop by Maker’s Mark brings a curated taste of Star Hill Farm directly to your home … no bottle hunting required.”
Maker’s Mark hasn’t specified if this will include commemorative bottles, which draw thousands annually to Keeneland and elsewhere for autograph sessions, according to the Herald-Leader, but say additional details are expected in January.
The paper reports Maker’s Mark says the service will be available only in Kentucky and Washington D.C., and be “very limited.”
