A primo example of exceptional Booker’s craftsmanship at full throttle.

Jim Beam Distillery — the integral part of mega-corp Beam Suntory — is one of the largest Bourbon producers in the world. Seven generations of the Beam Family have worked the stills there since 1795. The Jim Beam Distillery makes an unusually large number of offerings for it’s core Jim Beam line and several brands, including Red Stag, Jacob’s Ghost, and a selection of higher end “small batch” Bourbons — Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s, Knob Creek, and our Bourbon fo the day, Booker’s.

Every bottle of Booker’s Backyard BBQ Bourbon is made with exacting standards and unmatched technique. What makes Booker’s so special, you ask? Well, the barrels are hand selected from the center of the rickhouse and aged to taste — this current batch is aged six years, two months, and ten days. Further, this fine American Bourbon is bottled unfiltered and uncut, clocking in at a scorching 128.8 proof (64.4% ABV). That’s enough full-flavored, raw American horsepower to keep that backyard party rocking until dawn… and then some more.

Smartass corner:
The first retail Whiskey from Beam was branded “Old Jake Beam Sour Mash” and the original, make-shift still was affectionately called “Old Tub.”

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
