Expertly finished for a bolder character, Maker's 46 is aged longer with special seared French oak staves added later in the process for a uniquely bold and smooth taste. Maker's 46 was the brainchild of Bill Samuels, Jr, son of the Maker's Mark founders, Bill and Margie. Released in 2010, Maker's 46 was the first new major expression to be created at the Maker's Mark Distillery since our original bourbon went into production in 1953.
