Booker’s Bourbon has unveiled its second release in the 2020 collection, entitled “Boston Batch.”
Every batch of this product carries a name that references the brand’s colorful history. This batch is named after the production site where Booker Noe first started his distilling career.
The distillery, now renamed the Booker Noe Distillery, is located in the small community of Boston, Ky. The facility was purchased by the James B. Beam Distilling Co. in the early 1950’s as a second distilling location to increase production capability at the time. Because Boston was removed from the day-to-day of the Booker’s flagship Clermont, Ky. distillery, Booker was able to “experiment with whiskey a bit more and really learn about bourbon-making process,” the company says. “Some may say this is where he found his love of experimentation.” That plant was his life for more than 40 years.
Like all batches of the collected Booker’s Bourbon line, “Boston Batch” was selected by Booker’s son Fred Noe. Uncut and unfiltered, this batch was chosen with the following company-provided characteristics:
- Proof: 126.5
- Age: 6 years, 3 months and 10 days
- Aroma: Vanilla, toasted nuts and hints of baking spices
- Flavor: Full with a finish that can be enjoyed neat
Booker’s “Boston Batch” is available nationwide beginning in July in limited quantities with a suggested retail price of $89.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
