The real news makes its mark
It’s OK. The grandson is going to keep it going.
Bill Samuels Jr., president of bourbon distiller Maker’s Mark, announced Wednesday that he intends to retire in April, ending 35 years at the helm of the company known for its bottles with red wax and its distillery in Loretto
That’s Loretto, Kentucky, folks; not Loretto Nebraska nor Loretto Tennessee.
Yeah, well. Jack Daniel’s isn’t real Bourbon, either.*
While Maker’s Mark is owned by Beam Global Spirits & Wine, the company will stay in the family, so to speak, as Samuels’ son, Rob, will take the reins after his father’s retirement.
In an ever-changing world, continuity where it counts is paramount.
No, Wild Turkey Rare Breed it is not, but crude Scotch it is not, either.
*Why so many Loretto’s, guys???? Explaining the difference between Bourbon, how any Kentucky whiskey is called that nowadays, and Tennessee whiskey (even if it tastes kind of the same) is hard enough as it is!
