Maker’s offers what is the most unique private selection program in the business, and we have been too long without one! The latest selection was produced by finishing Maker’s elixir with 10 staves:
Baked American Pure - 1
Seared French Cuvee - 2
Maker's 46 - 3
Roasted French Mocha - 2
Toasted French Spice - 2
We chose these to maximize a depth and complexity that goes above and beyond what you already love about this iconic whiskey. Silken-textured whiskey boasting notes of apple pie, cocoa nibs, sweet oak and vanilla all interlaced with a hint of fresh tobacco and dried fruit. Extremely smooth, with a long-lasting finish, this is a whiskey to savor over and over.
Travel fewer than sixty miles from Louisville, through the gorgeous green landscape, and you’ll arrive at a distillery with a reputation that dwarfs its footprint. Maker’s Mark has been putting its stamp on the world of whiskey since Bill Samuels Sr. bought the old Burks Distillery in 1953, though it didn’t really reach icon status until the mid-2000s. The brand’s signature red-wax top and square bottle are unmistakable tractor beams that draw whiskey lovers in droves. With a reputation for quality and consistency, their small batch production has changed little over the years, with the introduction of just two new products in the last decade. Our recent visit to the distillery served as our reminder that this is one hell of a whiskey.
