It's Maker's Mark and it's WHISKY. Read the label.

Sorry you and the label are wrong. It is not WHISKY, it is American so it is WHISKEY.

From their Twitter account: "So why we do we spell whisky without the “e” at Maker’s Mark? The Samuels decided to pay homage to their Scottish-Irish heritage."

Still is Whiskey. Sorry to be pedantic, but it is, and should be labelled so.

Whether it is whisky or whiskey has been the basis of many arguments over many years. The Scots spell it whisky and the Irish spell it whiskey, with an extra 'e'. This difference in the spelling comes from the translations of the word from the Scottish and Irish Gaelic forms. Whiskey with the extra 'e' is also used when referring to American whiskies. This 'e' was taken to the United States by the Irish immigrants in the 1700s and has been used ever since. Scotland, Ireland and America all have a rich heritage in the whisky industry.

I will shut up now. Just a bit of a pain for me when Whiskey is described as Whisky.

The description I put is exactly what's on the label. I'm in no position to change it.

Their info.

If you knew whisky/whiskey a little more then you'd know that there are a few American whiskies that spell it without the E. Old Forrester is another.

It's a "pain" for you? Get a grip.The extra e means nothing, it's literally a marketing gimmick from the 1800's when Scotch was terrible and Irish distillers wanted to market their product for export so they would add the "e". Quite a few American distillers use "whisky" to pay homage to their Scottish roots.

OP is 100% correct
