For years, many of you who've visited us at the distillery in Loretto have had a chance to taste "White Dog," and now, you can take a bottle home!More
The word is out! If you visit the Maker's Mark Distillery, where every bottle of our bourbon is handmade, you will see a new bottle on the counter. Maker's White is what we call "white dog" in the bourbon whisky world. It is Maker's Mark, but it isn't quite bourbon. You see, the white dog is the Maker's Mark mash that has been produced and distilled but hasn't been put in the new charred oak barrels and aged (5-1/2–7 years for original Maker's Mark). You still get that same corn-heavy, less-bitter taste with the red winter wheat in place of the rye, but without some of the woodsy, sweet finish.
