Maker’s Mark DNA Project - Genetically speaking, humans are 99.9% the same. But that little bit of difference makes us all very distinct. The same can be said for our bourbon. Even the smallest detail makes a big difference when it comes to taste, and this project is proof.
Each project is an experiment exploring variations in fermentation, distillation and maturation, to further understand what makes Maker's, well, Maker's. The precise and purposeful process our founders created to achieve their taste vision is now both time-honored and scientifically proven. Go on and taste for yourself the undeniable difference a little detail can make.
Some old school distillers say that if you shake the bottle, you get a sense for the proof of the bourbon. If your bourbon has large bubbles that disappear quickly it indicates higher proof, while smaller bubbles that disappear slower indicates lower proof.
Maker’s Mark DNA Project is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky bottled at 110.4 Proof, 55.2% ABV.
