Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series BRT-2 Bourbon Whiskey -750ml
Maker’s Mark® Wood Finishing Series may be the easiest way to taste your way through the rick house. The name BRT was given to these expressions because of the influence our consistent practice of hand-barrel rotation (BRT) and the temperature has on our whisky process. Made to be enjoyed as a pair, BRT-01 is inspired by the tasting notes found at the hotter top of the Brickhouse, and BRT-02 is inspired by tasting notes found at the cooler bottom. Together, they give people the unique opportunity to experience where the characteristics responsible for the original Maker’s Mark® come from, so they can reach a new level of understanding of whisky. To achieve the taste of Maker’s Mark, we’ve always hand-rotated our barrels from the top to the bottom of our Brickhouse. This equal exposure to temperatures gives each barrel the consistent flavors Maker’s Mark is known for. BRT-02 is inspired by the cooler bottom of the Brickhouse and uses French oak staves to dial up the flavors developed over its final years of reaction.
