Maker’s Mark® is a handcrafted bourbon whisky. Each individual batch of our bourbon is less than 19 barrels. This small quantity means we can be choosy about everything we use and everything we do to craft our whisky. We use the old-style sour-mash method, starting each new batch fermentation by using a little of the last, which results in a more consistent product. Every barrel of Maker’s Mark is aged to taste, not time – a practice very uncommon among bourbons. It’s up to our tasting panel, which includes our master distiller, to determine when our whisky is ready for the world.
