    It's too bad there's no stock left for them to sell on this incredible marketing push.

    Sucks to be folks who love Makers - with stock outs like that, price hikes have to be coming. And coming soon. I'll bet you see a 10-15% price increase this year, and the "shortage fear" will probably drive sales to continue up

    Wonder what color wax the new owners will use for the 80 proof international version.

    I'll bet you a bottle of Old Grand Dad that they offer a higher proof internationally before a lower one.

    And I think it should still be red wax, but kind of a faded red.

    But they already export a lower (80) proof version...... and it's in a 700ml bottle to rub salt into the wound.

    Quite so Cam, that's my point. They already know how just waiting on the chance.

    Re: Appears the Maker's shortage is real...

    I still like the stuff...really like MM 46. Everything goes in cycles. Beam was and still is the favorite target of bashing...including Maker's. Throw Brown-Forman in there too. BT was up until 2 years ago the sainted distillery. Now look what we are getting from them..including deception (8 and 6 instead of 8 years and 6 years). At least Maker's came out and told you they were going to lower MM to 84 proof.

    BT I think is the real villain in the bourbon industry..between fanning the flames of BTAC (I think they intentionally kept stocks of BTAC low to drive the demand..Jason Pyle also wondered out loud about that)..and PVW insanity and now with deception. Weller 12 is the only thing I buy from them only because it is so good. When they take that away I will wash my hands completely of them.
