Maker’s Mark to launch new bourbon

Maker’s Mark to launch new bourbon

Maker’s 46 – the first-ever new bourbon from the distillery, save for the limited-edition (and now highly rare) Maker’s Mark Select – differs from the regular Maker’s Mark in that it is finished in a barrel containing 10 ‘seared’ French oak staves, for about three months. It will also be bottled at 47% abv (94% proof), compared with the regular’s 45% abv (90% proof). The staves, sourced from the Vosges area of eastern France, are aged for 18 months, then seared – a gentler process than full charring. Maker’s 46 takes its name from the Missouri-based Independent Stave Company, where the staves are sourced: 46 refers to the number that the firm gave to the staves, which are exclusive to Maker’s Mark.
