About Booker's 'Boston Batch' 2020-02 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Each year sees a few batches of Booker's uncut and unfiltered bourbon released, each batch meticulously aged to perfection ― it's ready when it's ready. The second release is the Boston Batch that pays tribute to the beginnings of Booker Noe's distilling career at the production site where it all began ― Boston, Kentucky. It's there, at the secondary distillery, that Booker was able to experiment with his craft, growing into the master distiller that he would become. The expression consists of barrels from 3 different production dates, stored in 6 locations within 4 rickhouses. Bottled at 126.5 proof, it's a nutty, bold, and complex bourbon ― just the sort that everyone expects from this fabled distillery.

Jim Beam's grandson Booker Noe couldn't wait to turn 21 ― not so he could start drinking, but rather distilling. Being 6th generation distiller with Beam blood coursing through his veins, as well as growing up in the heart of Kentucky, it was only natural. He worked for years as a Master Distiller, then started bottling his very own bourbon as gifts for family and friends after retiring. In 1988 he released the first batch of his namesake Booker’s Bourbon to the public, coining the phrase "small batch" along the way. Today Booker's is run by his son Fred and operates under the Jim Beam distillery. "Fred, make sure they don't mess with my Booker's," is what he requested of his son at his retirement.
