Undoubtedly one of the most striking features of Maker's Mark is the wonderful bottle design! The caps of Maker's Mark bottles are individually sealed with beeswax by hand. Afterwards, this wax flows downwards and a different wax shape is formed in each bottle.
Another feature of Maker's Mark is that there is no “Whiskey” on the label. “Whiskey” to write. As you know, whiskey in America is not written as "Whiskey", but as "Whiskey" with the -e extension. Maker's Mark is one of the few American brands to break this generalization.
