Just in time for Father’s Day, we are very excited to share news of the second Booker’s Batch of the year: Booker’s Bourbon 2021-02 “Tagalong Batch.”
The second release of the Booker’s® Bourbon 2021 Collection is Booker’s Batch 2021-02 “Tagalong Batch.” This
batch celebrates the way 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe learned the ropes at the distillery – by
‘tagging along’ with his grandfather, Jim Beam.
The distillery was like Booker’s playground growing up; he loved spending time with his grandfather and everyone
else who worked there, asking questions and expanding his knowledge. That’s ultimately how he developed his
curiosity and passion for whiskey, and it was how he became such a talented Master Distiller.
The tradition of ‘tagging along’ has continued from generation to generation. 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe
learned much of what he knows about whiskey by following his dad’s footsteps, digesting all of the information he
could while working alongside him at the distillery. It’s also a tradition Fred continues to this day with his son Freddie,
and one that will be shared with future generations.
Like all batches of Booker’s Bourbon, Booker’s “Tagalong 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 chosen with the following characteristics:
AGE: 6 years, 5 months, and 0 days
BATCH NOTES: Booker’s “Tagalong Batch” has a deep rich color. The aroma contains caramel and vanilla,
balanced with “sweet brown” wood sugar notes from the charred white oak barrels. The
flavor is bold with a surprisingly clean finish – making you want to come back for another sip.
SIPPING SUGGESTIONS: Booker’s “Tagalong Batch” is best enjoyed neat, over ice, or with a few drops of water.
Booker’s Bourbon is one of the only bourbons available today that is bottled uncut at its natural proof, yielding an intense flavor and nose that is one-of-a-kind. 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 his close friends and family. Taking barrels found in the center-cut of the rack house, Booker bottled the bourbon straight-from-the-barrel, creating Booker’s Bourbon, a true barrel bourbon. Today, 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe personally tastes and selects every batch of Booker’s Bourbon before it is bottled to ensure that it matches Booker’s
personal preferences for a robust and full-bodied whiskey. Each batch of the 2021 collection will be released in limited quantities and feature a unique label and batch name honoring founding distiller Booker Noe, his love of family, and his spirit of experimentation.
