Behind the Scenes
Over the years, Twin Liquors has created limited release spirits in partnership with brands you know and love. From Bourbon to Tequila, Rum, Cognac, and more we have had the opportunity to travel the world, visiting distilleries and craft our own unique blends. The results have been wonderful and the Maker’s Mark Private Select is no exception. Blended by Michael, the eldest of the Twin Liquors 4th generation, this blend has been so popular that Maker’s is now producing its 4th run! We thought it would be fun to take you behind the scenes. Let’s go!
Possible Combinations Lead to
The journey of this Bourbon began in October 2016 at the Maker’s Mark world-famous distillery in Loretto, KY. The first step in the process was lunch at Maker’s on-site restaurant, Star Hill Provisions because we believe that every good venture starts with breaking bread. After lunch, Michael began the first step of his unique creation. “I was presented with five versions of fully matured Maker’s Mark Bourbon at cask strength that had been specially aged with different unique wooden staves. Each wooden stave represents a different type of wood that was charred at different temperatures to bring out the unique wood flavor of each stave. The staves are like spices that add character and personality to the base bourbon.” There were five different toasted wood types to choose from and over 1,000 different possible combinations.
