Bookers Bourbon has unveiled its second release in the 2020 collection, entitled Boston Batch.
Every batch of this product carries a name that references the brands 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 1950s as a second distilling location to increase production capability at the time. Because Boston was removed from the day-to-day of the Bookers 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 Bookers Bourbon line, Boston Batch was selected by Bookers son Fred Noe. Uncut and unfiltered, this batch was chosen with the following company-provided characteristics:
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

30 years ago, my dad, Booker Noe, released the first batch of his namesake Booker's® Bourbon as his vision of what the perfect whiskey should be. In honor of Dad's legacy and in celebration of 30 years of the damn good whiskey he created, we're celebrating in the best way we know how – by releasing a special extra-aged, limited edition Booker's® Bourbon.

Over the last few years, the floors of some of our rackhouses in Clermont were in need of redoing, so we pulled up the floorboards. We thought it would be a shame to throw away so much history, so we stored them for something special. Each box of Booker's® 30th Anniversary Bourbon is made from the reclaimed wood of those floors – the same floors walked by legends Booker and Fred Noe as they selected batches of Booker's.
