    Sign that the Mayans might be right!

    At least in Kentucky, regional distributor advised my local store that there is now a shortage of . . . . MARKERS MARK!

    Anyone care to venture what the next "shortage" brand will be?

    Re: Sign that the Mayans might be right!

    Assuming this is true, I find it hard to believe it's a long term issue. It would be more like the Knob Creek "drought". The product is only aged 5.5 - 6.5 years. I would think that the increased demand was gradual, and that production increases have probably produced a decent amount of 2-4 year bourbon that is in rickhouses in Loretto as we type. I wonder if M46 has caused some of this, if MM is pulling some stock to be used for this to command a price premium.

    I think we have heard about the MM shortage before. In the past, shortage meant that not all distributors could could get all they were willing to buy. I see MM all over the place; including Christmas gift boxes, and handles.

    Working on the retail side I can confirm that there will be a shortage of MM in at least the Central KY area per the distributor. Simply not enough product to go around... or so they say.

    I can't think of a time over the past twenty-plus years that I didn't see it in every liquor store in MA, NH, CT, NY, MD, DC and everywhere else I go, including Bermuda. Pretty much every bar I've been to has it too.

    Next up, a shortage in plastic-bottle vodka.

    If they restrict my plastic bottles I shall have to file a formal protest.
