Each year, Booker’s release a series of bottlings that celebrate the life of founder and former master distiller Booker Noe. This expression, titled “Beaten Biscuits”, is the 4th and final Booker’s release for 2019 and commemorates the small, cracker-like biscuits Booker Noe loved to make. Like his bourbon and his country hams, he was meticulous about getting them just right. This batch was produced on a single date and stored in two warehouses in three locations scattered on Booker’s land.
Fred Noe (Booker’s son Beam Family’s 7th Generation Master Distiller), says it best….
“Dad learned to make beaten biscuits from his grandmother, and he spent years trying to perfect the recipe. These little biscuits required the air to be beaten out of them (which is how they got their name), and they had little holes in them to keep them from getting stale too fast.”.
