Making Maker’s Mark 46™

Our Wood Finishing Series began with the creation of Maker’s Mark 46. We started with a barrel of fully matured Maker’s Mark at cask strength and then inserted 10 seared virgin French oak staves – stave profile 46 – into the barrel and finished the bourbon for nine additional weeks in our limestone cellar. The result was a remarkably smooth, yet distinctly bolder and more complex whisky.
