    It's time to say hello....

    Just want to introduce myself. I have been reading (or spying) on straightbourbon.com for months now but never contribute anything. My name is Jane Conner and I work for Maker's Mark. I love this website and have learned so much from it. So thank you!

    Great that you goined our little discussion. Sounds like you have already started your trip through the bourbon world. What do you do at MM? Which MM is your favorite bottling?
    I would like to make it to Lorreto the next time I tour distilleries. I hear that y'all have expanded your oporations a bit.
    Hope you post often.

    Re: It's time to say hello....

    I'm kind of their Global Brand Ambassador. I was originally hired to work for them in the UK (not the University of Kentucky) but had some Visa issues. So I travel around and do seminars, tastings, etc. Basically my job is to take the Distillery abroad. When I am in town I spend a lot of time at the Distillery. I've always been a big bourbon drinker and I love traveling so it's a pretty natural fit, not to mention my dream job!

    Do you need someone to carry your luggage?

    Or perhaps, take notes at a meeting?

    Or lie down in a puddle so you can walk over it?

    I've got some free time and also enjoy bourbon, occasionally.

    Thanks! That's a nice offer.

    To answer Jeff's question. I was in Japan in Sep. last year and got to taste all 3 MM bottlings side by side. I liked the Gold Label (100 proof). I didn't care as much for the black (although the Japanese miss it). And I always love the Red.

    Are you single?


    I have not had the 100 proof version. Does it blow the doors off of the regular?
