Labor Day Libations – Maker’s Mark, Maker’s 46 and Tequila Avión

Maker's Mark cocktail

This summer has clearly been a momentous one for fine bourbon and tequila lovers around the world.

We have seen the launch of Maker’s 46, the first ever new bourbon from the historic Maker’s Mark Distillery, in addition to the launch of Tequila Avión, an ultra-smooth, premium tequila made from 100% Blue Weber Agave.

Both of these premium spirits are made of superior quality and offer exceptional flavor.

As Labor Day has arrived and many summer vacations are winding down, people are enjoying the their last summer beach getaway or backyard barbecue. Of course, we know many cool cocktails will be flowing.
