Maker’s Mark Cellar Aged was announced in August 2023, and was released in September. Per the company's press release, it will be an annual limited release and will be created using the same maturation approach each year, but the specific blend of bourbon ages will vary from year to year and be based on taste. According to the company, “To become Maker's Mark Cellar Aged, barrels of the distillery's classic distillate first spend approximately six years aging in traditional bourbon warehouses, where they endure the Kentucky climate and its temperature swings season after season until they reach full maturity and can be called ‘Maker's Mark.’ Barrels are then moved into the distillery's proprietary whisky cellar for an additional five to six years of aging before being blended to taste and bottled. Built into the natural limestone shelf of the Kentucky hills, the cellar's consistently cool environment slows down the tannic impact that occurs during maturation, while allowing the bourbon to develop a deeper, darker flavor with hidden depths, but no bitterness.”
The inaugural 2023 release of Maker’s Mark Cellar Aged is a batch totaling 225 barrels. The total bottle count is undisclosed, however at an estimated 180-240 bottles per barrel this puts the estimated yield somewhere in the 40,500-54,000 bottle range. Cellar Aged will be available in the United States in September 2023; in London, Munich, and select Global Travel Retail accounts in October 2023; and in Tokyo and Singapore in early 2024.
