This one changed the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way he thought about making it. Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. Never bitter or sharp, Maker’s Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a one-of-a-kind, full-flavored bourbon that’s easy to drink. 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 our signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill, Sr. would have wanted.
Aroma: Sweet oak, vanilla, bright fruit, and wheat prevail in the nose.
Taste: Sweet with the balance of oak, vanilla, and fruity essences.
Finish: Smooth and creamy with pleasant soft spice and clean finish.
