Thank you sir.

One reasonably large lottery win and I'm there.

My Dead Head friend from OC was impressed with Bruce H at a GD London show. Afterwards he was a big fan.

I only saw the Dead 2x; both shows at Merriweather. Good times....

I hope to be preparing for/doing the big move at the same time that's happening.

Maybe I'll be able to make the next one.

I don't post a lot I know, but I find it my duty to post the super important stuff!!!!!

Quote:
You spoke. We listened.

Dear Friends,

Since we announced our decision last week to reduce the alcohol content (ABV) of Maker’s Mark in response to supply constraints, we have heard many concerns and questions from our ambassadors and brand fans. We’re humbled by your overwhelming response and passion for Maker’s Mark. While we thought we were doing what’s right, this is your brand – and you told us in large numbers to change our decision.

You spoke. We listened. And we’re sincerely sorry we let you down.

So effective immediately, we are reversing our decision to lower the ABV of Maker’s Mark, and resuming production at 45% alcohol by volume (90 proof). Just like we’ve made it since the very beginning.

The unanticipated dramatic growth rate of Maker’s Mark is a good problem to have, and we appreciate some of you telling us you’d even put up with occasional shortages. We promise we'll deal with them as best we can, as we work to expand capacity at the distillery.

Your trust, loyalty and passion are what’s most important. We realize we can’t lose sight of that. Thanks for your honesty and for reminding us what makes Maker’s Mark, and its fans, so special.

We’ll set about getting back to bottling the handcrafted bourbon that our father/grandfather, Bill Samuels, Sr. created. Same recipe. Same production process. Same product.

As always, we will continue to let you know first about developments at the distillery. In the meantime please keep telling us what’s on your mind and come down and visit us at the distillery. It means a lot to us.

Sincerely,

Rob Samuels Bill Samuels, Jr
Chief Operating Officer Chairman Emeritus

I have mixed feelings about the change to Makers Mark. Seems like poor planning on their part has made the change necessary to keep up with demand. I am not enough of a connesour (sp?) to be able to notice the change. There are so many good bourbons out there, this will perhaps give the diehard MM fans an excuse to try some other brands.

Now they've decided to change back to the original formula - vaguely reminicent of the Classic Coke - New Coke dust up of a few years ago. Mission accomplished Makers Mark - lots of free publicity and renewed brand awareness, and in the end you "did the right thing" by your loyal customers. Give your marketing team a bonus! Much ado about nothing....

Maybe some of this....




OLD CROW

There is a thing of many names. Some call it “rack whiskey” or “well bourbon,” but it all means one, terror-inducing thing: the bottle of bourbon that sits at the bartender’s knee caps that he/she will pour if you just say “I’ll have a bourbon.” Well drinks. And, very likely, the most used well bourbon of them all is our old friend, Old Crow. Old Crow is a devilish plunge into budget bourbon brought to you from your sneaky friends at Jim Beam. Its tasting notes are that of battery acid, kerosene, and thumb tacks with an “Oh Christ, you’re gonna have a bad tomorrow” finish. That being said, Old Crow is respectable in that it is, truly, an old, storied brand (claiming to be America’s oldest bourbon and the first bourbon to employ the “sour mash” process). So, if you have to fly a bottle of the cheap stuff, Old Crow, at the very least, shows you’re still respectful of the process.


Hey DannyLee- You're gonna have to get up with us soon.
