WHAT YOU GET ON
this season’s box
Maker’s Mark® 101 & Maker’s Mark® 2023 CommUNITY Batch
For many, it’s the season of giving. For us, it’s also the season of sharing. This Drop, we’re including our seasonal release of Maker’s Mark 101 – something we’ve been pouring with others for a couple generations now. We’re also including our Whisky Drop exclusive 2023 CommUNITY Batch release – a special blend selected by the mentors of The LEE Initiative’s Women Culinary and Spirits program, proceeds of this bottle sale will be donated back to the program. The holidays are a time for both enjoying and giving back.
Maker’s Mark® Cellar Aged & Maker’s Mark® Cask Strength
Since we created our limestone cellar, we quietly began exploring the limits of what our bourbon could be. Soon began the secret creation of our first blend of 11- to 12-year-old bourbon. Well, the secret is out now and coming to the next Drop alongside Cask Strength – the same liquid Cellar Aged began as before its additional aging in our always-cool cellar. It’s good to get that off our chest and to finally get this special bourbon into your glass.
Whisky Drop Selection 01: Caramel Popcorn & Whisky Drop Selection 02: Chess Pie
This past fall, we gave several Whisky Drop members the opportunity to craft two original Private Selection bourbons, along with a memorable trip to Star Hill Farm. Now, you can see (and taste) how your fellow members did in creating flavorful expressions Caramel Popcorn and Chess Pie.
Maker’s Mark® 2023 Limited Release: BEP & Maker's Mark® 46 Cask Strength
In this shipment we’re bringing you the final installment of our Wood Finishing Series’ first chapter – a tribute to our lower barrel entry proof. We’re pairing it with the whisky wisdom of our Chairman Emeritus, Bill Samuels, Jr. – the creator of Maker’s Mark 46® – in the form of Maker’s Mark 46® Cask Strength.
Maker’s Mark® 2022 CommUNITY Batch® & Maker’s Mark® Classic: Holiday Edition
We’re delivering a couple gifts early – two exclusive bottles you can only get in your drop. Members of The LEE Initiative’s Women Culinary and Spirits Program shared in creating their own Private Selections, which we’ve thoughtfully blended to make our 2022 Maker’s Mark® Community Batch®. Coupled with our special limited-edition holiday bottle and the fact that part of the proceeds goes to The LEE Initiative, you’ll be all set to settle right into the season of giving (and getting, in this case).
Maker’s Mark® 2022 Limited Releases: BRT-01 & BRT-02
We still hand-rotate our barrels because it’s key to the consistency (and deliciousness) of our whisky. These bottles are inspired by that painstaking process – BRT-01 telling the extraction story that occurs with the heat at the top of our warehouse and BRT-02 following it up with the years of reaction at the cooler bottom.
Maker’s Mark® 2022 Private Selections: Master of Maturation Selection & Master Distiller Selection
Master of Maturation Jane Bowie and Master Distiller Denny Potter have “master” in their titles for a reason. They know a thing or two about whisky. And this is your chance to get a real taste of their ideal (and distinctly different) Maker’s® expressions.
Maker’s Mark® Entry Proof 120 & Maker’s Mark® Entry Proof 125
This drop brings you the third and fourth bottles in our exploration of Maker’s Mark® bottled from different barrel entry proofs. We took a deep dive into the choices our founders made in 1953 through a series of experimental barrels and want you to taste the results.
Maker's Mark® Entry Proof 110 & Maker's Mark® Entry Proof 115
Every bottle of Maker’s® comes from a barrel with the same 110 entry proof – no more, no less. Well, except for the bottles in the next two drops. We’re showing you what our bourbon is like at four different entry proofs. Make sure to grab the entire set..
Maker’s Mark® 2021 Limited Release: FAE-01 & 2021 Limited Release: FAE-02
These expressions are a perfect pair telling two completely different sides of the same story. And while FAE-01 has been out in the world for a while now, it’s been missing its FAE-02 counterpart. Luckily, this drop will let you be one of the first to have and sip both side by side, just as they should be.
Maker’s Mark® Private Selections: Melted Mocha & Rich Mendiant
This drop’s expressions mark the end of one beloved Private Selection stave and the beginning of its worthy successor. If you’ve ever been curious to see what difference a single stave truly makes, this drop gives you the perfect opportunity to compare.
2020 Spring Limited Release & Maker's Mark Private Selection: Roasted French Mocha
The Whisky Drop by Maker’s Mark™ returns with a bang, bringing two of our favorite (and seldom-sipped) bourbons direct to your door. Ever wonder what Rob Samuels, grandson of the founders, likes to serve special guests? Wonder no more.
Maker’s Mark® Wood Finishing Series 2019 & 2020 Releases
What better way to kick off our Whisky Drop than with two of the hardest-to-find bourbons we’ve released in recent years (and arguably a couple of our best). Unlike last year, though, the only place you may need to look to find a bottle could be your front doorstep. We set aside a few bottles of our 2019 and 2020 Limited Releases just for Whisky Drop members like you.
