The Maker's Mark Bourbon company has been working with the best Bourbon artisans to create a series of innovative barrels for the future. The result is our 2021 Limited Release: FAE-02, a double-heat-treated virgin French Oak barrel staves that undergo an infrared exposure prior to a flame toast, which will be filled with the world's oldest living Bourbon Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky's finest spirits.

Our 2021 expressions took a leap forward with a full year of stave research. FAE-02 staves are French Oak that’s double heat-treated – with infrared, then a flame finish. The infrared creates furans (or caramel flavor). The flame finish balances the caramel with lignin (vanilla.) For FAE-01, we seared one side of the stave – leaving one side raw – extracting different flavors from each side of the wood.
