Maker’s Mark is a full-flavoured bourbon, made with soft red winter wheat. French oaked for layers of flavour, it is the taste vision of Bill Samuels, Jr.
Rich notes of caramel, vanilla and baking spice greet the palate along with layered complexity.
It’s the result of first-of-its-kind finishing, beginning with a fully matured cask-strength Maker’s Mark. Ten seared French oak staves are fitted into the barrel, and then the whisky is finished to maturity under ideal conditions in our limestone cellar. It took some doing. But Maker’s 46® is the realization of Bill Jr’s. taste vision.
