The first bottle of Maker's Mark featured the brand's distinctive red wax seal when it was produced in 1958. Every bottle since gets the dip so you know it's legit. No other liquor is allowed by law of copyright. It's that handcrafted quality, too, that makes Maker's Mark such a special bourbon. The original is a regional favorite, but if you ever have the opportunity to try Maker's Mark 46, do so! It's aged longer than normal along with toasted French Oak staves.
