Some guy with a lawsuit has a story. Forgive me if I decline extrapolating it into anything more than that.

Bulleit.

I just did this a while ago myself. Leaving behind the cloying vanilla notes of Makers was a good move.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they probably have more racists than the north.

makers mark is not anywhere near my favorite bourbon, but it IS the go-to "top shelf" bourbon at a ton of bars and restaraunts.

i have no problem boycotting them.

lord help me if similar shit goes down regarding Blantons, Evan Williams, Bulleit or Black Maple Hill.

Excellent recommendation. I actually like Buffalo Trace a little better and it is cheaper.

Maker's blows. Easily my least favorite available everywhere bourbon.

Any bar that doesn't have Wild Turkey 101 can fuck right off.

I'm pretty sure I drove by this place the last time we were in Louisville. Now I'm really, really glad we didn't go there.

Think it is the same Andre Mulligan in Louisville?

I bet it is.

Looks like the guy tried to sue McDonald's before.

But yes, let's set up a boycott of Makers Mark, and call Southerners names.

So dumb.

I would very much disagree with this statement. The North is just a less outspoken with its racism. Same thoughts about the non-whites but with the sense to keep it under wraps unless things seem "safe" in a group of similarly opined people.

I don't really think of Louisville as being particularly southern. I could see this going down at that shitty Makers restaurant though.

That story doesn't pass the smell test with me at all. Nobody is that stupid. But hey, don't let that stop anyone from enabling a litigious grifter and shitting on the south.

Obviously racists are alive and active in the northern and southern US both (Randy Newman - Rednecks.mp3), but it's undeniable that the south has a culture of racism that the north does not.

Could you summarize? I'm not dipping a toe in that fetid fever swamp.

Also, Maker's is bullshit. Do they make any high-end bourbon under a different label?

From the looks of it, someone in Illinois wants to know where they can join the Klan. In an even more curious turn of events, there is a long standing Klan group in Illinois that said they could hook him up.
