When Maker’s Mark was first put into production back in 1954, most bourbons on the market were using rye in their mashbill. Maker’s mark literally went against the grain and chose to use red winter wheat over rye, giving their bourbon a distinctively smooth front-of-palate sweetness. Maker’s Mark takes pride in doing things by hand, rotating each barrel to maintain consistency and hand-dipping their distinctive bottle in its signature red wax.

Appearance: Bright caramel.
Nose: Banana bread, caramel and vanilla.
Taste: Creamy French vanilla ice cream, honeycomb with almond notes.
Finish: Smooth, warming cinnamon and mellow oak notes.
Overall: Smooth, easy drinking whiskey.


Gateway bourbon for sure. In fact, gateway whisky, Maker’s Mark is excellent stirred down in your favourite American cocktail classics or just sipped neat over a few ice cubes. Get this bourbon for those people just starting to explore the wonderful world of whisky.

If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Maker’s Mark you could also try Basil Hayden’s, Bushmills Black Bush or Blanton’s Special Reserve.


Distilling was most likely brought to present-day Kentucky in the late 18th century by Scots, Scots-Irish, and other settlers (including English, Irish, Welsh, German, and French) who began to farm the area in earnest. The origin of bourbon as a distinct form of whiskey is not well documented. There are many conflicting legends and claims, some more credible than others.

Maker’s Mark Distillery

Originally Burk’s Distillery constructed in 1885, the origins of Maker’s Mark began when T. William Samuels Sr bought the distillery in 1953. Production began the following year.

Gateway bourbon for sure. In fact, gateway whisky.
