Makers Mark Handmade Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Makers Mark Handmade Kentucky Straight Bourbon 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 highly distinct from the majority of other bourbons on the market which are made from a mash of malted barley, rye, and corn. Wheat serves as the replacement for rye in the recipe. This wheated bourbon, is crafted from red winter wheat, and bottled at 90 proof. Pick up your bottle today!
