A cooler version of Maker’s Mark BRT-01—it’s BRT-02!

Maker’s Mark didn’t start as a family drama series but as an adventure quest to find Bourbon that would taste just right and wouldn’t demolish your taste buds. Bill and Margie Samuels experimented with different flavoring grains and finally changed the traditional rye grain for a more squishy, red winter wheat. This swap gave Maker’s Mark Bourbon its unique subtle sweetness. What made their bottles so special was the signature red wax topper on the top, a homemade invention by Margie. The brand is still family-owned and operated, as it has passed from father to son to grandson with the words of wisdom that stuck throughout generations—“Don’t screw up the whisky.”

The BRT-02 Series is BRT-01’s cooler older brother, as its flavor is influenced by the slightly chiller bottom of the rickhouse. It uses French oak staves to bring up the cheeky tastes developed over years of chillin’ out at the lower part of the warehouse. Being on the bottom has surprising benefits, as it adds darker and heavier characteristics of forest fruit and gourmet chocolate. This Wood Finishing BRT-02 series holds an impressive 54.7% ABV and embodies an array of flavors, from toasted nuts to premium cacao chocolate.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
Listed as “Burk’s Distillery,” it is the first distillery in the United States to be designated a National Historic Landmark.
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 Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
