Type: Bourbon

Whether you’re after a smooth, full-flavored bourbon to sip neat or something to use in your favorite cocktail, any of these Maker’s Mark® expressions are a great place to start.

The Maker’s Mark you know today is made just as it was when we filled our first bottle.

This can feel like an old-fashioned, inefficient process at times, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.



Maker's Mark

This one changed the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way he thought about making it.

Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. Never bitter or sharp, Maker's Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a one-of-a-kind, full-flavored bourbon that's easy to drink.

To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time.

Each and every bottle of Maker's® is still hand-dipped in our signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill, Sr., would have wanted.

Cask Strength

This is Maker's Mark® Bourbon in its purest form.

Bottled at barrel proof and nonchill filtered, Maker's Mark® Cask Strength ranges from 108 to 114 proof depending on the barrels.

Surprisingly smooth, this bourbon retains the signature, front-of-the-palate flavors of Maker's Mark® while amping up the vanilla and rich oak notes.

Maker's Mark 101

It’s everything you love about Maker’s Mark® with a whole lot more to love.

Our founder himself, Bill Samuels, Sr., was the first fan of this high proof bourbon. Bill liked to tuck a little 101 aside for friends and special occasions.

And for a long time, this was the only way you could experience these intensified notes of caramel and spice brought on by the higher proof – yet matched with that familiar Maker’s Mark® smoothness.

Now – at special times during the year – this limited release is available for you to share with guests of your own.
