Wood experimentation done right.
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-02 2021 Release s the fourth limited edition of the series. It starts with a cask-strength fully aged Maker’s Mark that’s additionally aged in second casks with French Oak staves. The staves are double heat-treated with infrared and a flame finish. This creates caramel flavors and balanced them with vanilla notes. It’s rich, it’s wonderfully oaky, and there’s enough spice to stand against the big body and the luscious texture.
