To celebrate the Kentucky Governor’s Mansion Centennial Celebration, Maker’s Mark released a commemorative bottle with the eight living Kentucky governors. Each label was scheduled to be hand-signed by each governor, and the bottles debuted at the centennial gala on June 7.
All proceeds from these commemorative bottles will go toward efforts to preserve the governor’s mansion as a historical landmark, according to Kentucky Governor’s Mansion Executive Director Ann Evans.
The living Kentucky governors are Wendell H. Ford (1971-1974), Julian M. Carroll (1974-1979), John Y. Brown Jr. (1979-1983), Martha Layne Collins (1983-1987), Brereton Jones (1991-1995), Paul E. Patton (1995-2003), Ernie Fletcher, (2003-2007), and Steven L. Beshear (2007-present).
The limited-edition bottles were offered as silent auction items at the Centennial Gala. Any remaining bottles will be offered for auction at a future Mansion Centennial event.
