The first release of the Booker’s® Bourbon 2021 Collection is Booker’s Batch 2021-01 ‘Donohoe’s Batch.’ This batch is named in honor of retired Jim Beam employee Mike Donohoe who was also a close friend to my dad, Booker Noe. Without Mike, Booker’s Bourbon wouldn’t exist today.
We release a few batches every year. Each varies in age and proof because reaching Booker’s standards is a mix of art, science and Mother Nature. It tells us when it’s ready, and then we’ll let you know.
Booker's® 2020-03, “Pigskin Batch"
Each small batch our Master Distiller picks has a different story to tell. Learn how the barrel placement, aging, proof and other factors make each release unique and rare.
Booker’s® Bourbon is a rare barrel-strength bourbon, bottled uncut and unfiltered*. But you obviously know a good bit about bourbon, because you don’t end up here by mistake. We don’t advertise. We don’t do social media. We just do bourbon.
We focus on the sweet spot. The center of the rackhouse where the temperature and humidity stars align to create the deepest and most intense flavors. Once it’s aged to perfection, which always varies, the liquid is bottled uncut and unfiltered*. We don’t add, we don’t water down, and we don’t apologize for it. For some people, it may be too much. But for true bourbon fans, it’s probably the best ever.
“FRED, MAKE SURE THEY DON’T
MESS WITH MY BOOKER’S®.”
-BOOKER’S ONE REQUEST TO HIS SON AT RETIREMENT
Booker was a sixth-generation master distiller who grew up at a distillery in the heart of Kentucky. He was born to bourbon. While others rejoiced to drink bourbon at age 21, Booker was thrilled to start making the stuff.
In 1992, Booker introduced the world to small batch bourbon. He actually coined the term “small batch.” With it came his own signature bourbon, Booker's® True Barrel Bourbon. Inspired by a 200-year-old tradition, Booker's® is bottled uncut and unfiltered*.
Uncut & unfiltered but never underage
