  1. This limited-release bourbon showcases the influence of Maker’s® unique, 110 barrel entry proof (also known as BEP)

  2. For bourbon, this process delivers more flavor, smoothness, even color. The extra water helps improve the congener concentration, which imparts flavors of caramel, vanilla and baking spice. These decrease as BEPs increase.


  3. This chapter of the Wood Finishing Series explored the nuanced techniques that helped our founders deliver on that distinct Maker’s® taste vision.

  4. The next chapter will take on an entirely new theme, so keep an eye out for what’s to come.
