Bill Samuels, President of Maker's Mark has great energy and enthusiasm for telling anyone about the fine Bourbon his family has made for generations. It's easy to see why, this is amazing stuff. Rich and incredibly smooth, with perfumed aromas of sweet vanilla oak and a lovely rich palate with a well rounded finish. Small scale production allows real attention to detail. Wheat used (rye is never used) is top quality and water comes from their own spring. The wheat is rolled rather than hammered as it is kinder to the grain, before being gently cooked. Distilled in an old copper doubler still the spirit is run off at relatively low proof maintaining its body. 8 years ageing in charred oak barrels adds sweet vanilla notes.
The same Makers Mark we know and love, just in a larger package.
