Unaltered, uncut, unparalleled.
Although Maker’s Mark® goes into barrels at a consistent entry proof of 110, the proof of Maker’s Mark® Cask Strength will vary.
As water evaporates from the barrels as our whisky slumbers, the proof increases. But if you’ve ever lived in Kentucky, you know our summer temperatures can fluctuate wildly – so the rate at which our bourbon becomes the “angel’s share” also differs. As a result, we’re never 100% sure what the proof will be till we open the barrels.
