About the Jim Beam Distillery
In 1953, T. Williams “Bill” Samuels Sr. purchased the Burk’s Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. A year later Bill began production of his family’s 170-year old recipe and Maker’s Mark was born! The company remained family owned until 1981, when it was sold to Hiram Walker & Sons. The brand is currently owned by Beam Suntory, and is still well-known for their premium bourbons.
