Since the beginning Makers had only ONE STILL. I can every still has its own personality.
I don't know the exact year, but within the last 5 they finally constructed the 2nd still to keep up with demand. In that process, they recreated the same dents and imperfections as the original still.
They have a staff on ten people to hand dip each bottle.
There are sever regions of the USA rejoicing this decision.
If only the people in those regions knew that this was actually Maker's kicking them in the dick and betraying their loyalty.
