The signature Maker's Mark family recipe, but at a special 101 proof for the holidays. For generations, special guests have sampled the signature whisky at a higher proof at the Maker’s Mark distillery. Through a new annual holiday release, this exclusive whisky will be available to share with special guests throughout the season.

Like all Maker’s Mark whisky, there’s a lot to discover within it, front-of-the-tongue bourbon smoothness, but with richer and more intense flavor from the higher proof. It’s definitely different – and a rare treat for all who make the pour. Rich, creamy and soft spice with fruit and caramel. The finish is mellow, creamy with a midpalate finish that pleasantly lingers.

Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon is special in that red winter wheat serves as the replacement for rye in the recipe. This special holiday release is bottled at a higher 101 proof that gives the profile some additional boldness, richness, and intensity that fans of the original are bound to appreciate.

Made from a mash of corn, wheat, and malted barley, Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky (spelled without an "e" to honor the Samuels family’s Scottish heritage) manages to marry large-scale, global production with a rich tradition in a way that few other distilleries can rival. The actual "makers" of Maker’s Mark still rotate the barrels in the distillery’s warehouses, bottle the whisky and dip the bottles in wax — all by hand.

On October 1, 1953, William Samuels Sr. purchased Burks Distillery, which was situated in Loretto, Kentucky, for $35,000. Five years later, the distillery released the first bottles of Maker’s Mark Bourbon Whisky, which featured the distillery’s distinctive red wax seal. The distillery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1980.
