Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky
The Cask Strength bottling from the iconic distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, is rarely seen on this side of the pond. So, we’re excited to be able to offer it now…
This is Maker’s Mark in its purest, unadulterated form. Bottled at barrel proof without being chill filtered, it’s as if the volume has been turned up to eleven. Richer and more intense than the classic, but still just as smooth. Cask Strength explodes with cinnamon bun, cherry cola, runny caramel, Bakewell tart, vanilla toffee, smouldering charcoal, smoked peppercorns, baking spices, charred citrus, big oak and Black Forest gateau. No serious whisky collection should be without it.
Maker’s Mark is handmade right down to each bottle being individually dipped in red wax. This pioneering producer replaced traditional distiller’s rye with red winter wheat to create a smoother whiskey. This wheat is fermented with heirloom yeasts that have been used by the Samuels family for 150 years. It’s then double-distilled in copper stills, before being filled into charred barrels. Those barrels are then rolled by hand into the warmest part of the warehouse, where they spend many hot Kentucky summers melding with the wood and developing that signature style. Maker’s Mark is a masterclass on how Bourbon should be done.
