The Making of Bourbon Whiskey

An illustrated description of the Bourbon production

Maker's Mark - New Make Whiskey Receiver

If you ask a master distiller of a Bourbon distillery, what influences a good Bourbon the strongest, then you receive the following answer: Grain, yeast, the fresh barrels from white oak and their storage have the largest influence on the taste of a Bourbon.

Where does this statement, which does not contain nothing at all over the details of the production procedure, come from? The answer to this question is simple and convincing. The American distilleries have usually the same production equipment and the same climate. The difference between the Bourbon manufacturers must thus be searched on another level.

In the following one I would like to describe the production process in its chronological order. The individual steps are:
