Think outside the box.

Knob Creek is a special small batch brand of Beam-Suntory. It's tailored — along with its sister labels Booker’s, Baker’s, and Basil Hayden’s — to the more discriminating Bourbon lover. You.

It’s named after a little creek that runs just south of the distillery, the same creek that ran by Abraham Lincoln's boyhood home in Kentucky. The brand was launched in 1992 and hasn't changed much since, besides adding additional products to the lineup, all of which are multiple award-winning expressions. Champions.

Knob Creek Smoked Maple takes their celebrated flagship Bourbon and infuses it with maple and smoke gusto. Like the original, but with a bit less bite and a bit more gentleness. Rounder edges.

Some of you are probably rolling their eyes right now. Added flavor? Bear with us. The Smoked Maple is the perfect gateway to the world of Whiskies and an awesome mixer. If you’re convinced Bourbon should only taste like Bourbon, this is a great chance for you to broaden your horizons. Think of it as Bourbon with added value. A bonus.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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 rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
