Why is Margie ignored?
Margie Samuels is the wife of the founder of Maker's Mark Bourbon, possibly the finest bourbon ever created. In the house, at the start of the distillery are several sketchbooks showing how she designed every step in the building of this distillery and the creation of the bourbon, in 1953.
here are two of her sketches from just 2 of the sketch books scattered around the house.
Above the sketch shows her design for the bottle and the color of the wax. Throughout this book she details everything from seal to label to colors.
this was the design for the distillery. Pages and pages of every detail.
