Experience the perfect Kentucky pairing – Keeneland and Maker’s Mark – hosted at the home of 8th generation Kentucky whisky maker Rob Samuels!
As Makers Mark’s very first customer, you’ll hear about their rich history and kindred relationship from Bill Thomason, President of Keeneland Racecourse, and Rob Samuels, grandson of the founders of Maker’s Mark. Joining Bill and Rob for the evening is Keeneland’s Executive Chef Marc Therrien. With more than 26 years in the industry, his love for Bourbon and passion for cooking with the finest local ingredients, this 5 course dinner with cocktails is sure to be the highlight of the evening. Chef Marc and Bill Thomason were the first to craft their perfect version of Maker’s Mark through the creation of a Private Select custom barrel. You’ll get to hear about their taste vision and sample their handmade Bourbon, Keeneland’s Private Select. Depart with a signed commemorative bottle along with the memories of a wonderful evening.
