Maker's Mark Bourbon is one among the most original premium bourbons. It has been distilled since 1953 and is known as a "wheated" bourbon, possessing flavours of vanilla and nut. Maker’s Mark uses only pure, iron-free limestone spring water, yellow corn and red wheat from specially selected small farm cooperatives, as well as naturally malted barley. It is among the few remaining bourbon distillers that propagates its own yeast for fermentation with cultures that trace back to the pre-prohibition era.
Fermentation takes place in cypress fermentation tanks as they don’t contribute iron or unwanted flavours to the final product. Maker’s Mark distils its whisky twice - once in an all-copper column still, to produce what is called low wine, and once in a copper pot still to produce high wine. This added step removes impurities and produces a more refined sipping whisky.More Spirits Visit Website
