The blood red wax top gives it away. There is no mistaking a Maker’s Mark. The golden liquid on the inside is just as distinct as the red wax seal is. John and I love our bottle of Maker’s Mark. It needs replacing more frequently than any other of our bourbons. Both of us have been lusting after the Maker’s 46 for some time. On one of John’s frequent travels, he managed to get his hands on this release. Not long after, I heard a bird whisper that the Maker’s 46 will be available in SA from October, so we don’t need to treat this bottle with care. We will be able to replace it again without to much drama.

The 14th of June is National Bourbon Day. A whole day to celebrate the magic that is the golden liquid from the USA. For a whiskey to classify as bourbon it must be made in the U.SA. In addition, its mash bill (mix of grains from which bourbon is distilled) must comprise at least 51% and no more than 79% Indian corn. Besides corn, the other grains used, include malted barley and either rye or wheat. Bourbon must be aged at least two years in a new, charred oak barrel made from American White Oak.
