Limited edition Maker’s Mark bottle honors Keeneland’s 75th anniversary
Maker’s Mark Distillery has been releasing limited edition bottles to support various UK projects since 1997, and their latest creation is the 2011 Maker’s Mark Mile commemorative bottle that honors the 75th anniversary of Keeneland, a global leader in Thoroughbred horse auctions. The limited edition Maker’s Mark bottle that went on sale last Friday flaunts the track’s specially designed anniversary logo in gold and gold wax coating the top. The proceeds from the sale of the bottle will benefit the Lee T. and Patsy Todd Jr. Development Fund for Music Outreach at UK’s School of Music. Maker’s Mark president and CEO Bill Samuels, Jr. said…
Every year, we strive to make this commemorative bottle and its charitable proceeds about the people and entities that have a positive impact on Kentucky.
People, including Maker’s Mark chief executive Bill Samuels Jr. and Lee Todd at Keeneland, on April 15, will sign the limited edition Maker’s Mark Keeneland bottle. Bill Samuels expects the sale of more than 18,000 bottles to bring in around $200,000.
