Beginning as a standard Maker's Mark wheated bourbon, Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series SE4xPR5 2020 Release is finished with ten seared oak staves, which are placed inside the barrels. Two stave profiles were used – SE4 and PR5 – marrying virgin French oak with virgin toasted American oak staves. Finally, both bourbons are married and the final result is a complex blend of both stave finishes, bringing spiced vanilla, baking spices, burnt caramel, and a touch of sweetness on the palate.

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. 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.
