According to the story, a former master distiller at Maker’s Mark helped launch the product back in 2009.
Because of the limited supply, Wyoming is the only place you’ll be able to get it. According to CEO Brad Mead, they have about 3,000 barrels aging, of which 200 will be released on December 1. If you are hoping to snag some, you’ll have to make the trip out to Wyoming.
