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.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Maker's Mark Wood Finishing 2021 Release Series FAE-01 and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
