Beam Suntory’s Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series 2021 FAE-02 – Product Launch

FAE-02 is the second expression from this year to join Maker's Mark's Wood Finishing Series.

  • Category – Spirits, whiskey, US, Bourbon, 54.5% abv
  • Available – From this month
  • Location – The US, available nation-wide in the off-premise
  • Price – SRP of US$59.99 per 75cl bottle, available in limited – albeit unspecified – quantities

Beam Suntory has released the second in this year’s two-strong line from Maker’s Mark’s annual ‘Wood Finishing Series’ of bottlings.

FAE-02, which joins March’s first expression in the Bourbon’s sub-portfolio, comprises cask-strength Maker’s Mark that has been finished in barrels that also hold staves made from virgin French oak. FAE-01 underwent the same ageing process but with American oak staves.

The pair take their name from the abbreviation for fatty acid esters, which, according to the brand owner, are present in spirit that has not been chill-filtered.

Available across the US off-premise in limited – albeit unspecified – quantities, Maker’s Mark FAE-02 will also feature in this month’s pack from ‘The Whisky Drop’, the brand’s direct-to-consumer subscription service, in Kentucky and Washington DC.
