Jan. 10, 2024 — To celebrate our arrival in the bourbon capital of the world, our new Publix Liquors in Louisville, Kentucky, is stocked with over 150 bourbon offerings, including a recipe from Maker’s Mark Private Selection. This Publix Liquors location is the first outside the state of Florida.

Maker’s Mark Private Select Bourbon Birthday Cake

Not only can you eat your cake, but you can drink it too! This recipe is creamy with a rich mouthfeel and balanced palate. It features notes of soft vanilla, pipe tobacco, red apple, leather, a touch of baking spices, confectioners’ sugar, cake batter and frosting, and it has a medium finish. Bottles of this recipe are available at Publix Liquors, located next door to the store at 2500 Terra Crossing Blvd. in Louisville.
