Growing up on Distiller’s Row in Bardstown, KY – son of Maker’s Mark Founder Bill Samuels, Sr. and godson of Jim Beam – Bill Samuels, Jr. has been an eyewitness to many milestones in bourbon history and has made history himself. A legend in the bourbon business, the seventh generation distiller has been hailed as many things: a maverick, one of the last true bourbon barons, a marketing genius, a visionary, and the best friend the Kentucky bourbon industry has ever had.
Bill’s father forever changed the bourbon industry when he introduced Maker’s Mark, the first ever premium bourbon, in 1953. The Samuels family had actually been making whisky in the U.S. since 1784, but the family recipe tasted so harsh it could blow peoples’ ears off. Tired of drinking whisky that burned on the way down, Bill Sr. was inspired to create a smooth tasting sipping bourbon. And so, in dramatic fashion, he gathered around his wife and kids in their living room and burned up the 170-year-old family whisky recipe (singeing some of his daughter’s hair in the process). Bill Jr. was just a boy then and little did he know he was watching history in the making.
One might think that it was a foregone conclusion that Mr. Samuels would someday take over Maker’s Mark from his father, but that was not the case. In fact, Bill Sr. encouraged his son to find his own passion and that he did. Before cementing his position firmly at the Maker’s Mark Distillery, billed embarked on several different career paths, meeting all sorts of interesting people along the way.
