Single Malt Whisk(e)y has kept to a resolved definition and revered perception for decades. However, with the boom of international whiskey, countries and distilleries look to showcase diversity, terroir and provenance in this wonderful category of whiskey.

A COnversation WIth Maker’s mark & Women Who Whiskey! 

Maker’s Mark Whisky has always been at the forefront of engaging bourbon drinkers experientially from the iconic red-tipped bottle and label designed by co-founder Margie Samuels to the Maker’s Mark distillery as bourbon tourism destination to the brand’s current Private Select program, which allows enthusiasts to create a personalized whisky by adding custom wood finishing barrel staves to specially selected casks. Most recently, Maker’s Mark has created the Diplomat program with the aim of educating customers and consumers through an immersive program that involves education on every level of the whisky making process. 

Join Maker’s Mark Trade Relations Manager Megan Breier in conversation with Kim Ohanneson, President of Women Who Whiskey ~ Los Angeles. Megan, who was named a highly commended American Whisky Icon by Whisky Advocate, will guide you through a tasting of four expressions of Maker’s Mark, including Private Select, while talking about creating innovative, educational experiences to help Diplomats engage and educate buyers and consumers by exploring every aspect of whisky making. In her previous role as West Coast Whiskey Ambassador for Beam Suntory, Megan created unique and memorable educational programs such as Aged and Glazed (bourbon and doughnuts) and Bourbon Is My Boyfriend.
