Makers Mark Wood Finishing Series Releases and Proofs

Batches & Proofs

The Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series began in 2019 and ended in 2023, with a total of 7 different batches released. Each bourbon in the series used 10 custom oak staves of varying types and combinations to create different flavor profiles. The oak staves that were used were Virgin American Oak and Virgin French Oak. For some batches they were toasted, other batches were not toasted, sometimes toasted on one side and raw on the other, and sometimes heat-treated in two different ways to extract different flavor profiles.

All Maker’s Mark bourbons are wheated bourbons (70% corn, 16% wheat, 14% malted barley).
