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.

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 first batch of 2021 is the Donohoe's Batch, named after Mike Donohoe, a retired Jim Beam Employee and a close friend of Booker Noe. It was Donohoe that came up with the idea of gifting Booker's own bourbon to important partners and distributors ― the idea that led to the creation of the brand. The 125.3-proof whiskey is aged 6 years and 11 months and is exceptionally balanced ― a fitting tribute to the man without whom "Booker’s Bourbon wouldn’t exist today." Full-bodied with notes of vanilla, baking spices, and an immensely satisfying finish, it's the epitome of what makes Booker's big and bold bourbons so well-regarded.
