Maker’s Mark Bourbon (750ml)

Maker’s Mark is aged for around 6 to 7 years, being bottled and marketed when the company’s tasters agree that it is ready. Maker’s Mark is unusual in that no rye is used as part of the mash. Instead red winter wheat is used, along with corn (the predominant grain) and malted barley. During the planning phase of Maker’s Mark, Samuels developed seven candidate mash bills for the new bourbon. As he did not have time to distill and age each one for tasting, he instead made a loaf of bread from each recipe and the one with no rye was judged the best tasting.
Maker’s Mark offers a smooth and silky taste profile featuring stewed fruit and wild flowers followed by ginger cake bread and rich earthy tobacco.
