Making Maker's Mark® Cask Strength.

If you can imagine the caramel, vanilla and fruity notes of Maker's Mark® turned all the way up, you'd have a pretty good idea of what Maker's Mark® Cask Strength is like. Of course, the best way to get to know it is to sample some for yourself. While the higher proof delivers a bold bourbon presence in cocktails, we recommend drinking this surprisingly smooth barrel-proof whisky neat, on the rocks or with a splash.

From the barrelIt's Maker's Mark®, unadulterated.

This is Maker’s Mark with nothing added to get in its way. Certainly not a beginner’s bourbon, Maker’s Mark Cask Strength is for the enthusiast who’s after bolder flavors and higher proofs. After being screen filtered to remove wood pieces and char, Maker’s Mark Cask Strength goes straight to the bottle at a range of 108 to 114 proof. This wouldn’t work with just any whisky. Maker’s Mark Cask Strength is well crafted with carefully selected ingredients and aged until it’s just right.

While it may seem like a recent addition to the Maker’s® family, in truth Cask Strength has always been at the core of every bourbon we produce. Even before we decided to put this premium bourbon in a bottle, Maker's Mark Cask Strength served as the base of the original Maker's Mark. It's also the foundation for the bourbons in our wood-finishing series – Maker's 46® and Maker's Mark Private Select®.
