Maker’s Mark Private Selection - S&W 45th anniversary edition

With a heavy pour of excitement, Smith & Wollensky has partnered with Maker’s Mark for the restaurant’s 45th anniversary, debuting Maker’s Mark Private Select Barrel. Earlier this year, members of the Smith & Wollensky team including Chief Culinary Officer, Chef Matt King and National Beverage Director, Christian Gianaris traveled to Maker’s Mark distillery in Loretto Kentucky to work directly with master distillers, creating a custom, unique expression of the wood-finished bourbon. The team worked collaboratively to develop a flavor profile that compliments the restaurant’s menu of premium steaks and chops, in addition to shellfish and seafood.

Whiskey Barrels

our own custom S&W blend

Beginning as fully matured Maker’s Mark® at cask strength, the Private Selection is created by adding 10 custom wood finishing staves, hand-selected by the Smith & Wollensky team, to each barrel. It’s then aged in a limestone cellar to extract a unique, flavorful taste profile. The finishing staves were a unique combination of various profiles chosen with S&W’s cuisine and experience in-mind.
