Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. That’s why Maker’s Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a full-flavored bourbon that’s never bitter or hot. To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time. Each and every bottle of Maker’s® is still hand-dipped in signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill would have wanted.
Woody oak, caramel, vanilla and wheat prevail in the nose.
Sweet and balanced with caramel, vanilla and fruity essences.
Smooth and subtle.
