Super limited release of our second Maker's Private Select barrel.
Joining the Maker's Mark Private Select Experience, a handful of our initially skeptical club members embarked on an enlightening journey through one of the most renowned distilleries. From the vast landscapes dotted with towering grain silos to the finely tuned, meticulous production process, the sheer scale and quality of the operation left us all in awe. The turning point, however, was our hands-on custom blending session. Guided by a couple of experienced Private Select ambassadors, we got to delve into the art and science behind whiskey creation, exploring different flavor profiles and crafting a unique blend that reflected our collective taste. This immersive, participatory experience transformed any lingering skepticism into genuine admiration, creating a new legion of Maker's Mark enthusiasts within our ranks.
