About Booker’s 30th Anniversary Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition).
30 years ago, Booker Noe, released the first batch of his namesake Booker’s Bourbon as his vision of what the perfect whiskey should be. This bourbon is a tribute to his legacy. While most batches of Booker’s are six-to-eight-years old, this 30th Anniversary Limited Edition bourbon is a blend of uncut, unfiltered 9-year (70%) and 16-year (30%) Kentucky straight bourbon whiskeys. Each box of Booker’s 30th Anniversary Bourbon is made from the reclaimed wood from old rackhouse floorboards – the same floors walked by legends Booker and Fred Noe as they selected batches of Booker’s.
