Lower barrel entry proof. Bigger flavor. This limited-release bourbon showcases the influence of Maker’s® unique, 110 barrel entry proof (also known as BEP). It was crafted to amplify the balanced wood sugars, softer tannins and lasting finish achieved with our low 110 BEP. Special finishing staves were used to amplify notes of vanilla and sweet spice that naturally occur from lower BEPs.
BEP is the fifth and final bourbon in this chapter of the Wood Finishing Series. Be sure to keep an eye out for our next series.
Toasty vanilla, subtle spice, caramel
Bright, vanilla, brown sugar
Medium body, balanced, rich caramel, dry baking spices
Cask Strength 109.6–110.7
Maker's Mark has a zero-landfill initiative that will repurpose or recycle all waste at the distillery, including pulverizing used Maker’s Mark® bottles into sand for hiking trails across their property, Star Hill Farm. They also created the world’s largest research repository for white oak trees, the source of all bourbon barrels. This provides a living laboratory for scientists to study the sustainability of the tree species for future generations.
Maker’s Mark is proud to be the largest distillery in the world – and the first in Bourbon Country® – to join the B Corp™ global community.
Earning this certification is a natural fit for the values we’ve always upheld, starting with our founders, Bill and Margie Samuels, who worked and lived by a simple philosophy: “Make Your Mark. Leave No Trace.” To us this means bold, proactive, regenerative actions (Make Your Mark) coupled with comprehensive efforts to leave nothing harmful behind (Leave No Trace) – all to ensure that future generations inherit a world that’s even better than the one we did. We’ve dedicated ourselves to using business as a force for good, an approach we have in common with other B Corp companies. This is a major milestone that recognizes our commitment to fulfilling the 100-year vision that our founders set in place from the very beginning.
