A classic Maker’s Mark, presented in a new way.

The original “Burk’s Distillery” was built in 1885 just outside of Loretto, Kentucky. T. William “Bill” Samuels bought the operation in 1953 for $35,000. Samuels wanted to make quality, so he used the sales of the existing stockpiles to finance a revamp. The first bottle of the new flagship brand “Makers Mark” was bottled in 1958 and dipped into the red sealing wax that has become the company’s trademark — making them one of the first to carve out a space in what we now call the “premium Bourbon” market. Currently owned by Beam-Suntory, members of the Samuels family still work at the company.

Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series FAE-01 2021 Release is the third limited release in the series. Like with the previous bottlings, a fully matured Maker’s Mark at cask strength is put to rest in secondary casks that contain unique staves. This time, only one side of the staves was seared to separate individual flavors. The result brings more naturally present dried fruit flavors and rich woody notes, with rich fig and tobacco as supporting players. A classic Maker’s Mark with a different twist.

Citing the difficulties stretching supply to meet burgeoning demand, they announced in 2013 that they would add more water to cut the strength from 45% ABV to 42% and that they were sure no one would notice. The change was ill received by the public and they reversed the decision less than a year later.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
