We are super excited to introduce the arrival of our own Bespoke Makers Mark 46 Private Select Single barrel. When we say bespoke we truly do mean custom made for you from us.
For those familiar with Makers 46 know that Makers Mark ages their bourbon over seasoned oak staves to impart a bolder more refined expression of Makers Mark. This barrel program took things a bit further as we got to choose a combination of unique staves (10 in total) to age our Cask Strength Makers Mark in.
Our particular recipe was the only one of its kind chosen in the country. We went with 3 Seared Cuvèe staves to impart a bold body and mouthfeel (think maple syrup and caramel), 2 toasted french spice staves to give hints of cherry and spice in the mid palate and rounded it off with 5 Roasted French Mocha staves to give a long dusted mocha finish. The final product is proofed at 110.8
We not only hand fed these staves into the barrel, we also hand filled the barrel, hammered in the bung and even hand signed each bottle to really place our stamp on this custom bottling. We hope that you enjoy this as much as we did. (see Video below)
