|Dear Michael J.,|
|As always, you are the ﬁrst to hear about the latest news here on Star Hill Farm. Today, I’m proud to share that Maker’s Mark is now the largest distillery in the world – and the ﬁrst in Bourbon Country® – to join the B Corp global community. Being a B Corp means we’re on the forefront of creating a sustainable future, not just for our environment here at the distillery, but also the communities around us and the planet we live in.|
Since the beginning, my grandparents and our founders, Bill and Margie Samuels, worked and lived by a simple philosophy that we continue to instill in everything we do today: “Make Your Mark. Leave No Trace.” To us this means bold, proactive, regenerative actions (Make Your Mark) coupled with comprehensive efforts to leave nothing harmful behind (Leave No Trace) – all to ensure that future generations inherit a world that’s even better than the one we did.
I can’t wait for you to watch the video we put together that gives a brief look into how we reached this major milestone and the impact our efforts are already making. Just like you’d share a glass of good whisky with a friend, I encourage you to share it with anyone you think might be interested, too.
Thank you for all you do to support Maker’s Mark and all we’re doing to make a bourbon that benefits the world possible. If you find yourself in our neighborhood, we invite you to Star Hill Farm to experience firsthand nature’s influence on the whisky we make and how our actions are leading the way for a more sustainable future. We can’t wait to show you around.
|Best Regards,Rob Samuels|
Grandson of the Founders
