This batch is named in honor of the signature phrase Sixth Generation Beam Master Distiller Booker Noe would use to compliment anything he approved, from his namesake bourbon to his country ham.
“Mighty fine” was Booker’s go-to phrase. He would often get together with others in the whiskey industry to taste samples of Booker’s Bourbon, and everyone knew he was happy with his selection when he sipped it and said it was “mighty fine,” followed by, “That’s a damn good batch!”
Shortly before Booker passed away in 2004, his son, Seventh Generation Beam Master Distiller
Fred Noe selected the barrels for a Booker’s Bourbon batch. Fred was a little nervous at first – he had big shoes to fill – but after Booker tasted the sample, he looked at Fred and said, “Mighty fine job, son.” Many people thought it was one of the best batches, but receiving Booker’s vote of confidence made it much more special for Fred – a moment he will never forget.
Inspired by a 200-year-old family tradition, Sixth Generation Beam Master Distiller Booker Noe created Booker’s Bourbon as a Christmas gift for close friends and family. Booker took barrels found in the center cut of the rack house and bottled the bourbon straight from the barrel. To this day, Booker’s Bourbon is still bottled uncut and unfiltered. Each batch is released in limited quantities and features a unique label and batch name that honors Booker Noe, his love of family and his spirit of experimentation.
Like all batches of Booker’s Bourbon, Booker’s “Mighty Fine Batch” was selected by Seventh Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe to ensure it upholds the qualities and standards his dad set for Booker’s Bourbon more than 30 years ago.
