Our oenologists' opinion
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
At the end of Prohibition, the Samuels family revived the distillation and decided to invent a new whiskey in a cubic bottle sealed with red wax. The first bottle of Maker's Mark, produced in Loretto, Kentucky, was sold in 1958. In 2005, Maker's Mark was acquired by the Fortune Brands group.
- Manufacturing: Made from corn, barley and wheat (rye but unlike traditional Bourbons), the Maker's Mark is also characterized by an aging without fixed term. However, it should age for at least 2 years old to earn the name "straight bourbon".
