"Maker's Mark is thrilled to celebrate the opening of Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.," said Dave Pickerell, Maker's Mark master distiller. "As every bottle of Maker's Mark bourbon is hand-dipped in red wax, it is a natural and dynamic collaboration with the world's premier wax museum. Both Maker's Mark and Madame Tussauds offer a truly interactive and full-sensory experience, with strong histories of craft and heritage - providing consumers a unique and unmatched experience."
Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is an interactive attraction where visitors can touch, hear and see major historical events and celebrities unlike any other D.C. attraction. The museum features 50 wax figures, including 13 presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush, famous Washingtonians, sports legends and today's biggest celebrities. There is also a special "Behind the Scenes" exhibit where visitors can get a hands-on look at the 200-year-old process used to create a wax figure at Madame Tussauds.

About Maker's Mark Bourbon Whisky
In 1954, at a small Victorian distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, Bill Samuels, Sr., made the first 19 barrels of whisky, that six years later would herald the modern era of bourbon. Using limestone water from the distillery's spring-fed lake and a mash consisting of corn, barley and soft, red, gentle winter wheat, Mr. Samuels created a bourbon that brought "good taste" and "taste-good" together for the first time. Today, Maker's Mark continues to handcraft its bourbon exactly the same way, in small batches by passionate individuals who are committed to craft, heritage and tradition.
WE MAKE OUR BOURBON CAREFULLY. PLEASE ENJOY IT THAT WAY
