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.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
The brand was built upon a reputation for quality from day one. During the 1960s and 1970s they used the marketing tag line, “It tastes expensive … and is.” And they are one of the handful of premium American Bourbon makers that uses the Scottish spelling of “Whisky” (without the "e") on their products.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
