About Booker's Teresa's Batch 2019-01 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition).
Booker’s Batch 2019-01 is named in honor of Teresa Wittemer, a longtime Beam distillery employee personally selected by 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe to work on his namesake bourbon brand. Booker always trusted his gut when it came to good bourbon – and good people. He hired Wittemer on the spot after a quick 15-minute interview more than 30 years ago, and she has been part of the family ever since. This high octane Booker’s Batch has incredibly complex savory and sweet notes followed by a lingering finish rich with character. At 125.9 proof Booker’s Batch 2019-01 is matured for 6 years 3 months and 1 day. This bourbon is distilled from a mash of 77% corn – 13% rye – 10% malted barley.

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.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
Crisp apples, citrus and baking spice on the nose followed by a sweet and savory palate with notes of dried tropical fruits, white chocolate and baking spice. The finish is lingering with a rich smooth character.
