Kentucky straight bourbon Whiskey
Jim Beam Small Batch Bourbons
As the name suggests only produced in small quantities, by tradition up to only twenty barrels at the most.
The Small Batch Bourbon Collection represents the very best in bourbon, each handcrafted in limited quantities using time-honoured recipes. These special recipes allow each Small Batch Bourbon to be distinctively different. As Booker Noe, Jim Beam's grandson and master distiller emeritus says: "This is bourbon the way it used to be, the way it was meant to be."
This range includes Basil Hayden, Bookers and Knob Creek
Named after Baker Beam, grand nephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker’s® Bourbon is seven-years-old and hand-bottled at 107 proof.
Baker’s Bourbon is made with a Beam family recipe preferred by Baker Beam, who has been making bourbon for more than 20 years. The recipe represents six generations of the family’s distilling skill to produce ultra-premium bourbons of rare distinction.
Beam Family Secrets:
Baker’s Bourbon is distinctive because it uses a time-tested strain of jug yeast that has been in the Beam family for more than a half a century. This yeast provides a silky-smooth texture and a consistent taste from batch to batch.
Baker’s is unique because it’s distilled at a lower-than-normal proof, 107, which adds to this rare bourbon’s bold and silky-smooth texture.
Baker’s Bourbon is a remarkably smooth bourbon. Intensely flavourful, full-bodied and ideally balanced, it is preferred by Cognac aficionados.
Beam Seal of Approval:
Baker’s packaging features a wine-bottle shape and a unique overlapping wrap-around label which reads, “The Beam family tradition of putting our best secrets inside the bottle, not on the label.”
