Delight your senses and quench your thirst for premium, crafted whiskey with WhiskyD. We believe that just like every sip you take, every whiskey bottle tells a tale of its unique journey, its heritage, its meticulous craftsmanship. One such whiskey that we take great pride in featuring is the Maker's Mark® Bourbon.
Handcrafted One Bottle at a Time
Just as it has been since the day the first bottle was filled, at Maker's Mark®, it's about creating one bottle at a time, each time. Why? Because character isn't made by a machine.
Maker's Mark® owes its distinctive flavor to the soft red winter wheat, the star of its mash bill. Unlike the traditional distiller's rye, this grain doesn't have an unwanted bite, allowing Maker's Mark® to stand out in the crowd of whiskies.
Pure and Untouched
The distillery's location on a limestone shelf plays a vital role in crafting the unique taste of Maker's Mark®. The limestone filters out iron, which can sour the taste of bourbon. The resulting calcium and magnesium-rich water ensures better drinking water and a better sour mash.
Heirloom Yeast Strain
Maker's Mark® uses a highly guarded heirloom yeast strain, which is over 150 years old and has been used in every bottle ever produced. This timeless ingredient contributes to the fresh and unique taste of Maker's Mark®.
Double-Barrel Distillation Stills
Our double-distillation process, carried out in gleaming copper stills, removes impurities, leading to a more refined sipping whiskey. This meticulous process ensures every drop of Maker's Mark® remains true to its original creation.
Charred to Perfection
With a custom number-three char achieved in just 40 seconds, we unlock the pores in the staves and caramelize the natural wood sugars. This helps give Maker's Mark® its pleasant vanilla notes.
Hand Rotated Barrels
Every 525-pound barrel is manually rotated to ensure proper exposure to the varying temperatures in the rackhouse. This practice adds consistency while setting us apart from distillers who abandoned this practice.
Aging with Grace
At Maker's Mark®, the whiskey tells us when it's ready. We age to taste, not time. Typically, it takes between six to seven years for the whiskey to reach maturity.
Hand-Dipped in Wax
Every Maker's Mark® bottle is hand-dipped in 400-degree red wax. This offers a personal touch, as each dipper has their style, from the skinny dipper to the no-nonsense dunker.
Label Cutting Tradition
Our distinctive labels are still cut using a hand-operated, 1935 Chandler & Price printing press, continuing the tradition initiated by Margie Samuels.
At WhiskyD, we offer a wide range of hand-selected whiskies, including the renowned Maker's Mark®. We believe in delivering not just a bottle, but an experience. So why wait? Join us in this journey of taste and tradition. Indulge yourself or find the perfect gift for the whiskey lover in your life today.
Welcome to WhiskyD, where every sip is a story. Enjoy the journey.
