July 13, 2022 (press release) –

Booker’s Bourbon has released the Second Batch of its 2022 Collection, this one called The Lumberyard Batch.

Booker’s Bourbon is one of the only bourbons that is bottled uncut at its natural proof. Inspired by a 200-year-old family tradition, Booker Noe, Jim Beam’s grandson and 6th Generation Master Distiller, first created Booker’s Bourbon as a Christmas gift for close friends and family. Booker took barrels found in the center-cut of the rack house, and bottled the bourbon straight-from-the-barrel.

Each batch of the 2022 collection will be released in limited quantities featuring a unique label and batch name honoring Booker Noe, his love of family and his spirit of experimentation.

This batch is named in honor of the lumberyard that Booker Noe worked at during his pre-distillery years. While his journey to becoming a distiller wasn’t a straight path, it led him to his true passion.

After a short stint at the University of Kentucky, Booker hitch-hiked across America in hopes of joining the Air Force. After being accepted, the local police called his mom to verify his information. When Booker’s mom found out where he was, she convinced him to come home and work at the local lumberyard with Jeremiah Beam, also known as Uncle Jere.

Booker was strong, over 6 feet tall and never backed away from physical labor of any kind, so he was a natural for the job. Booker gave 110 percent during his time at the lumberyard, which eventually landed him his first role working at the distillery. Since that first day, Booker held just about every job at the distillery and worked his way up to Master Distiller. His experience at the lumberyard shaped the solid work ethic and curiosity he is known for.

Like all batches of Booker’s Bourbon, Booker’s “The Lumberyard Batch” was selected by 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe to ensure it upholds the qualities and standards that his dad set for Booker’s Bourbon more than 30 years ago. Uncut and unfiltered, this batch was aged for just over seven years. Amber in colour, it has a deep aroma with a hint of vanilla and oak that opens up. It has a balanced taste with a bit of sweetness that leads to a pleasant finish. Best enjoyed neat, over ice or with a few drops of water.

The Lumberyard Batch is available nationwide beginning in July in limited quantities with a Suggested Retail Price of $89.99 for a 750 mL bottle.
