Our Maker’s Mark Private Select Story
In 2009, Bill Samuels Jr. set out to create a bourbon with a smooth delicious taste and Maker’s 46 was born. Through an extensive process with many of our best beverage professionals at Concord Hospitality, we created our own version of Maker’s Mark, choosing from 1,001 possible combinations of five different types of wood staves. The base of the barrel is Maker’s Mark Cask Strength Bourbon, uncut from the barrel to the bottle at 108 to 114 proof.
We came up with our own combination of 4 different types of French oak staves to create our very special batch of Private Select. The combination is (1) Seared French Cuvee, (4) Maker’s 46, (3) Roasted French Mocha, and (2) Toasted French Spice. We believe it to be the perfect blend for the Bourbon fans.
