Handcrafted premium Kentucky Straight Bourbon defined by four fundamental elements, also called the 4 W’s – wheat, water, wood and wax. The founder of Maker’s Mark had the idea to replace rye with a type of winter wheat in order to escape the spiciness naturally coming from the rye and to highlight the vanilla and caramel flavours. As for the aging, the time is given as a range from 5.75 to 7 years. Another essential step for keeping Maker’s Mark flavour consistent is by rotating the barrels through different levels of the warehouse as the temperature throughout the year fluctuates. The final touch to its distinctiveness is its most recognizable visual feature, i.e. the red wax at the top. Since the beginning of Maker’s Mark, it is done by people, not machines, and therefore each bottle is unique in a way.
"What separates this bourbon from the rest is the softness and smoothness of its rich oak, vanilla and raisiny-like flavours."
Jane MacQuitty, The London Times
