Margie Samuels, wife of founder Bill Samuels, played a major role in branding Maker’s Mark by creating the name, label, and bottle design (including the iconic red wax) which has been around ever since 1953.
International Women's Day has been observed since the early 1900's, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. Margie Samuels is the perfect example of a woman who has made significant contributions to not only the future of Maker’s Mark, but to history. Join us in celebrating this holiday with Margie Samuels’ favorite Maker’s Mark cocktail, below.
