Maker's Mark

The Maker’s Mark Recipe uses soft red winter wheat resulting in a lighter tasting, premium bourbon whisky with caramel and vanilla notes that’s perfect for mixing, in cocktails or neat over ice.

Due to that fact, that Maker’s Mark like many other whiskey contains wheat we can conclude that it is not an ideal whiskey for you to consume if you are very sensitive gluten or are suffering from any form of celiac disease.

*Although whiskeys are derived from gluten-containing ingredients like wheat, barley and rye, the distilling process removes the gluten proteins. For this reason, some people are able to consume Marker’s Mark bourbon whiskey without any adverse effects.
