Drink of the Day – Maker’s 46

makers 46 makers 46 // an even smoother makers mark // ziprage maker’s 46 ($40) is an even smoother version of maker’s mark.  it begins it’s life as normal maker’s mark which is removed from the barrel when it’s fully matured then 10 seared french oak staves are attached to the inside of the barrel and the maker’s goes back for a few months to become 46.  the process adds natural caramel, vanilla, and spice flavors without adding any bitterness. only 25,000 cases will be shipped this year.  so get your hands on some before @jay_brow buys it all.
