Born from the storied traditions of the Maker's Mark Distillery, Maker's Mark 46 is a bold and distinct expression that pushes the boundaries of flavor, setting a new standard for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Maker's Mark 46 begins with the signature Maker's Mark bourbon, known for its rich, full-bodied character and iconic red wax seal. What sets Maker's Mark 46 apart is the additional aging process that takes place using French oak staves.

The first sip reveals a luscious blend of sweetness, with notes of toffee, spice, and a touch of dark chocolate, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on the palate.

Smooth and well-balanced, Maker's Mark 46 finishes with a lingering warmth, leaving behind a satisfying trail of cinnamon and oak. This bourbon is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, allowing its intricate layers to unfold and be savored sip by sip.

Maker's Mark 46® is the recipe of Bill Samuels Jr., son of founders Bill and Margie, and the first new major expression since classic Maker's® was released in 1958. Maker's 46® is aged longer with special seared French oak staves. With subtly layered bourbon notes and balanced complexity.
Then, ten heavily seared French oak staves are placed in just-emptied standard Maker's Mark barrels, which are then refilled and returned to the warehouses to finish aging for an undisclosed amount of time (estimated to be 2-3 additional months).Maker's Mark Distillery | Visit Us in Loretto, KY | Maker's Mark.
Maker's Mark® began with one family's quest to create a bourbon they enjoyed drinking and sharing with friends. As the world's first premium bourbon, it changed the industry in 1953.
It starts with fully matured Maker's Mark straight out of the barrel. But then it takes a bold twist. We add seared French Oak staves to the barrel, and then finish it a bit longer in our cool aging cellar.
Maker's 46, which was the company's first addition to its regular lineup, is basically Maker's Mark (wheated bourbon aged 6 to 6.5 years) with an additional 10 weeks of aging with 10 “seared” French Oak barrel staves inserted into the casks, and bottled at an extra 2% ABV (at 47%)
