Booker’s Batch 2022-01 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


Shipping calculated at checkout.

This Batch Is Named In Honor Of Ronnie Land, A Longtime Employee At The Jim Beam Clermont And Boston, Ky., Plants, When Booker Noe Was Master Distiller. Ronnie Worked At Jim Beam For 40 Years, Eventually Working His Way Up To Warehouse Manager. Ronnie Was Responsible For Keeping Inventory Of Aging Barrels, A Key Part Of The Bourbon-making Process, And He Knew The Quantities And Locations By Heart. He Also Knew Exactly Where Booker Preferred To Store His Namesake Barrels And Was Trusted To Prepare The Samples For Batch Evaluation. Once, Ronnie Sent Booker A Box Of Small Samples To Taste, And Booker Immediately Knew They Weren’t Big Enough To Get A Proper Sense Of The Whiskey. Ronnie Then Went Back And Prepared Samples That Were Notably Bigger, And Booker Was More Than Pleased. This Became The Standard Sample Size Which 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe And His Son, 8th Generation Beam Family Distiller Freddie Noe, Still Use To This Day.
