Maker's Mark Bourbon Cocktails | Apple of My Eye | Redhead | Squash
Maker's Mark is a well-known bourbon brand from American that is famous the world over and up until a few days ago I am shamed to admit that I had never tried it. Thankfully Maker's Mark sent myself a sample which I really enjoyed and I will look forward to my next experience of this fine bourbon.
In the past we have written a lot about this American distillery and you can read more about this distillery on the American Distillery page on this website. With that in mind it does give me great pleasure to introduce Planet Whiskies readers to three cocktails that use Maker's Mark.
This bourbon is handcrafted and premium with its smooth, rich flavour and iconic red wax-dipped bottles from the family distillery in Kentucky, Maker’s is the perfect drink to accompany any meal this time of year. If your American it is even more an ideal drink to accompany the Thanksgiving feast of turkey and all the trimmings.
About Maker's Mark Bourbon
Maker’s Mark is created in batches of less than 19 barrels at a time with a handcrafted production process which includes hand-dipping each bottle in the signature red wax seal and double distillation. Because of this there is only so much Maker’s Mark available in the UK making every drop precious which needs to be shared and savoured with a good friend.
