Booker’s® Bourbon is proud to announce the first of an anticipated six releases in its 2016 Batch Collection, “Booker’s Bluegrass.” Named in honor of two of founding distiller Booker Noe’s favorite things — whiskey and bluegrass music — this batch features a label depicting a banjo.
“My Dad, Booker, created Booker’s Bourbon to be his version of the perfect whiskey — uncut and full of rich flavor,” said Fred Noe, Beam’s 7th Generation Master Distiller. “‘Booker’s Bluegrass’ is a reflection of just that, and is a true testament to Dad’s larger-than-life personality. Whenever there was bluegrass music, he could be found dancing front-and-center or trying his hand at playing with the band.”
Like all batches of Booker’s Bourbon, “Booker’s Bluegrass” was selected by Fred Noe to ensure that every batch contains a full-bodied whiskey that matches Booker’s personal whiskey preference.
