Jim Beam Distillery releases Booker’s Batch 2023-02 Apprentice Batch. Aged for seven years, one month and two days, Apprentice Batch is bottled at 125.5 proof. Seventh-generation master distiller Fred Noe selected it — Booker Noe’s son.

Booker’s Batch pays tribute to the people, places and history behind the brand. This batch pays homage to the beginning of Booker Noe’s distilling career when he first learned how to make bourbon under the guidance of his cousin, Carl Beam.

The batch is an ode to the early portion of former Beam master distiller Booker Noe’s career. Shortly after joining the Jim Beam Distillery in 1952, Noe learned under the tutelage of his cousin, Carl Beam. “Carl was in charge and didn’t put up with any foolishness – he always made sure Booker was set straight,” according to the company. “But even if Booker did mess around sometimes, he was a fast learner and ready to be put to work, which quickly got Carl’s approval.”

Like all batches of Booker’s Bourbon, Apprentice Batch was selected by Seventh Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe. Uncut and unfiltered, this batch is 125.5 proof.

Booker’s Bourbon Apprentice Batch has a suggested retail price of $89.99 for a 750-ml. Bottle.
