    Maker's Mark Ambassador Stickers

    I got the stickers from Maker's the other day. One says

    "I hope the next time I'm in,You'll serve Maker's Mark"

    The other

    "Thanks For Serving Maker's Mark, I'll be back Again"

    They are to be placed on your check after a visit to a bar or restaurant. What do you think, will you be using yours?

    Re: Maker's Mark Ambassador Stickers

    You made me go down and sort though my mail...No, I won't be using these. I think Maker's made a poor choice sending these out, it is in no way in line with their normal marketing or reputation, it's actually pretty crass.

    I had the exact same thought when I got mine.

    I'd probably use them just to stir things up, and because, when I ask for bourbon in most bars here, I still get offered Jim Beam white, Southern Comfort or Jack Daniels

    But this is all assuming they send me some. I haven't had an email from Makers Mark in over 12 months now.... and the last time they send me something was Christmas cards the year before last...

    Re: Maker's Mark Ambassador Stickers

    Haven't seen them. The Christmas cards were a big hit with my friends though. This year they sent me a little shaker and some napkins. I have loved their marketing to this point. The DVD actually worked, getting my friend to start drinking Maker's Mark instead of Gentlemen Jack.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the stickers. I agree that I like having more choices than JBW (and WT80) for bourbon in a bar, but most places I go have at least Maker's Mark... My problem is that I'd like to try more unusual products when I'm in a bar. Last time I ordered bourbon in bar I ordered Jim Beam Black (they said they had it) and they poured me Jack Daniels Single Barrel. I would have complained, but I wanted to try the latter anyway, so I drank it. Not bad, but I wouldn't spend the money they are asking for a bottle. It still tasted like JD

    Re: Maker's Mark Ambassador Stickers

    While I encourage people to get to know their local booze purveyors and express their preferences, I have to say I would prefer normal modes of communication, like talking. Putting a pre-printed sticker like that on a bill seems tacky, both on the part of Maker's for suggesting it, and on the part of anyone who actually would do it. It's something else we just don't need in the world. What's next, "we'd like this place much better if the tissue in the bathroom was Scott's."
