Maker’s Mark Private Select
Back in June of 2017 our fearless leaders Don, Evelyn and JR Bonds embarked on a journey to Maker Mark Distillery in Loretto Kentucky to make our own expression of Makers Mark Private Select.
When you visit the Maker’s Mark Distillery, you’ll have a rare opportunity to experience Maker’s Mark® Private Select™, a series of Maker’s Mark® expressions created by using the same principles Bill Samuels, Jr., used when he created Maker’s 46®.
Beginning as fully matured Maker’s Mark® at cask strength, expressions of Private Select are created by adding 10 custom finishing staves to each barrel and finishing them in our limestone cellar to extract more flavor. The 10 finishing staves can be any combination of five flavor profiles chosen especially for this program. With 1,001 possible stave combinations, each expression of Private Select has a customized finish and taste profile that is unique, yet undeniably Maker’s®.
Our personal selection was 2 Makers 46 Staves, 6 Roasted French Mocha and 2 Toasted French Spice.
We hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed bringing this to you!
Pour Vous – For YOU!
