Maker’s Mark and Maker’s 46 are the same. But different. Back when the distillery decided to create a new companion to Maker’s Mark, they wanted a bourbon that offered intensified flavors – especially those of vanilla and caramel. After much trial and error, they discovered that the perfect starting point for Maker’s 46 was right in front of them all along – it was Maker’s Mark. So Maker’s 46 actually begins as fully matured Maker’s Mark. And then they begin the inventive, handcrafted finishing process that creates a bourbon with bold vanilla, oak and caramel flavors – yet retains the easy drinkability of Maker’s Mark.
Wine EnthusiastFinished in the barrel with specially seared oak staves, this Bourbon is a new classic. In the glass, it sports a bright maple color, and lively, spicy aromas and flavors of oaky vanilla and tropical fruit touched with clove, ginger and allspice.
