Celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month with Super-Premium Beam’s Bourbons
Beam Inc. – Small Batch Collection
September is Bourbon Heritage Month and Beam Inc. is offering its Small Batch Collection to help honor and celebrate the great taste of bourbon.
Beam’s Small Batch Collection is handcrafted in limited quantities. The great tasting bourbon was carefully matured for exceptional quality and flavor. The bourbon collection from Beam Inc. includes the following distinctive super-premium bourbons – Booker’s, Baker’s, Knob Creek and Basil Hayden’s.
Bourbons will love that Beam’s bourbon is aged from six to nine years in new, charred American white oak barrels. Each barrel is characteristic of pre-Prohibition whiskey, providing strong, rich flavors and aromas.
A small batch bourbon is a complex balance of taste and flavor fit only for a true connoisseur. Beam’s has created sipping recommendations in addition to sharing delicious cocktail recipes.
BOOKER’S – Booker’s Bourbon delivers a range of intense flavors from oak tannin and smoky vanilla to lighter tones of mocha and coffee. Add spring water to customize the taste and finish to your palate.
BAKER’S – The mix of grains, yeast, and seven soothing years in new oak combine to give this bourbon a deeply mellow, richly flavorful, medium-bodied taste with a delicious aroma full of fruit and vanilla. Baker’s is best served in a snifter with a splash of spring water.
KNOB CREEK – The World’s #1 selling Super-Premium Bourbon is aged for nine years and bottled at 100 proof creating a rich and hearty, pre-prohibiton style bourbon. Knob Creek Perfect Manhattan is indeed the perfect way to commemorate the holiday.
BASIL HAYDEN’S – A Super-Premium Bourbon that is incredibly approachable and ideal for mixing into cocktail due to the fact that it’s made with twice as much rye as ordinary bourbons and bottled at a mild 80 proof. Basil Hayden’s has partnered with renowned NYC mixologist Julie Reiner to create the Basil Hayden’s September Sour – a twist on the classic New York Sour its sure to please fans of both classic and contemporary cocktails.
