In 2015, American Pharoah captivated the hearts of fans worldwide by becoming the first-ever winner of horse racing’s fabled Grand Slam. By sweeping the Kentucky Derby®, the Preakness Stakes®, the Belmont Stakes® and the Breeders’ Cup® Classic, American Pharoah established himself as one of the greatest racehorses in history. That’s something we can really relate to around here. After all, no one thought you could make a bourbon both full-flavored and easy to drink. Until we did it. In honor of American Pharoah’s inspiring and exhilarating achievement, we’re proud to introduce a limited-edition American Pharoah commemorative bottle. To further mark the occasion, Maker’s Mark and the Zayat family will make a donation benefitting the Kentucky Derby Museum, a nonprofit organization with an impassioned commitment to engage, educate and excite.
Endorsed and supported by Ahmed Zayat, the bottle features the now-legendary blue and yellow livery of Zayat Stables. These iconic bottles will be available beginning May 1. And be sure to show us how you’re celebrating the first ever Grand Slam winner by tagging your bottle #MakeItDelicious on Instagram and Twitter.
