Makers Mark is my bourbon of choice. I believe the use of wheat vs rye contributes to my fondness for Makers. I'm wondering if other distillers use corn and wheat in lieu of rye for their mash?

The other wheated bourbons are those traditionally made by the Stitzel-Weller company, particularly Old Fitzgerald and W.L. Weller. Fitz is now owned by Heaven Hill and Weller is owned by Sazerac, but both companies have promised to maintain the wheated formula.
