As the season changes and we nestle into winter, we take our whiskey even more seriously. So much so that we traveled to Kentucky and created our own barrel!
We are beyond thrilled to introduce our Private Select Barrel from @makersmark.
The process works like this: we took a barrel of Maker’s Mark 46, emptied it and then with the help of a Maker’s Whisky expert we had the chance to select ten addition barrel staves to add back to the barrel of 46 to be re-filled. After learning about the different staves and their flavor profiles, we started mixing, matching and sampling. In the end we ended up with a selection of seven Roasted French Mocha, two Baked American Pure and one Seared French Cuvee.Once the barrel of Maker’s 46 was refilled with our staves, it aged for an additional three months.
We wanted to create something that was rich and bold, yet approachable. The finished whiskey came out better than we imagined. This barrel is something quite special and unique to just our bars, you can only purchase this Whiskey at de Vere’s.
Enjoy it on it’s own or or in an Old Fashion.
