Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk
together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda
, and salt. Using your fingertips, blend
the butter and shortening with the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center and using a fork, stir in the buttermilk and Maker's Mark (R) Bourbon. The dough should be wet and sticky. Turn the dough
out onto a floured surface.
Being careful not to overwork the dough, gently pat the dough out into a single layer, lightly dusting with flour as needed, then fold the dough over twice and pat out again. Repeat this process three times more, then roll/pat out the dough until it is about 1 1/2 inches thick. You may cut biscuits using your knife or a ring cutter.
Place the biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Makes 12 biscuits
