Makers Mark 101 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Makers Mark 101 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky

On October 1, 1953, William Samuels Sr. purchased Burks Distillery, which was situated in Loretto, Kentucky, for $35,000. Five years later, the distillery released the first bottles of Makers Mark Bourbon Whisky, which featured the distillerys distinctive red wax seal. The distillery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1980.Made from a mash of corn, wheat, and malted barley, Makers Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky (spelled without an "e" to honor the Samuels familys Scottish heritage) manages to marry large-scale, global production with a rich tradition in a way that few other distilleries can rival. The actual "makers" of Makers Mark still rotate the barrels in the distillerys warehouses, bottle the whisky and dip the bottles in wax all by hand.Makers Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon is special in that red winter wheat serves as the replacement for rye in the recipe. This special holiday release is bottled at a higher 101 proof that gives the profile some additional boldness, richness, and intensity that fans of the original are bound to appreciate.
