Maker’s Mark Black Label is a discontinued bottling of the iconic Maker’s Mark bourbon that was produced exclusively for the Japanese market. This specific one was bottled in 1997. Maker’s Mark was founded in the 1950s by Bill and Margie Samuels. The brand’s recognizable red wax quickly became an icon in the whiskey world. This very rare vintage edition has a black label and black wax, and is bottled at 47.5% instead of the usual 45%. A truly unique find! It comes without the original box.
