Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden’s is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden’s is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only ‘rule’ to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.
In 1988, Booker Noe introduced his own signature bourbon,Booker’s True Barrel Bourbon. Inspired by a 200 year-old tradition, Master Distiller Emeritus Booker Noe, grandson of Jim Beam, created his very own bourbon. Unlike anything you have ever tasted, Booker’s is the only bourbon bottled straight-from-the-barrel — uncut and unfiltered — a true connoisseur’s sipping bourbon.
First created as a holiday gift for his special friends, Booker’s whiskey was so well-received that he decided to make it available to bourbon lovers worldwide; much to the joy of spirit connoisseurs everywhere. Booker’s Bourbon delivers a range of intense flavors from oak-tannin and smoky vanilla to lighter tones of mocha and coffee. Add spring water to customize the taste and finish to your palate. The complexity provided by this straight-from-the-barrel bourbon makes Booker’s the rarest, absolute best bourbon you can buy.
When Booker Noe fathered the small batch bourbon movement over two decades ago he created Knob Creek to bring back the standards of pre-prohibition bourbon. Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve encounters no detours or distractions. It’s just the big, pure flavor that Booker set out to create. Each barrel of Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is bottled individually to become one-of-a-kind, meaning that each batch we handpick will have slight variations in taste, color, and aroma based on its final age, rack placement, and other proprietary methods passed down for seven generations.
Handcrafted in limited quantities, Knob Creek is patiently aged to fully draw out the natural sugars in its charred white oak barrels. As a result, this exceptional, full-bodied bourbon strikes the senses with a maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness and rich, woody, caramel flavor with a long, smooth finish. Made at 100 proof and created to reflect the flavor, strength, care and patience that defined pre-prohibition whiskey, Knob Creek is perfect straight or cooled slightly with one or two ice cubes.
