Released in extremely limited quantities, Booker's 30th Anniversary Bourbon features a mingling of uncut, unfiltered 9-year-old and 16-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskies, which together present robust flavor with the brand's signature notes of vanilla that Noe preferred in his namesake whiskey. Bottled at 125.8 proof, these barrels were aged specifically with Booker's legacy in mind under the watchful eye of 7th Generation Master Distiller and Booker's son, Fred Noe.
A robust and powerful bourbon, Booker's 30th Anniversary is itself a reflection of Booker, the man. His legacy is also honored in the details of the packaging. Each bottle of Booker's 30th Anniversary is topped with a special silver wax then packaged beautifully in a box made of reclaimed wood from the very rackhouses where Booker once walked as he selected his personal batches of Booker's Bourbon.
Like all Booker's releases, Fred Noe carefully watched over and selected the barrels for this release.
