Beam Suntory, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition expression, from its Booker’s Bourbon brand, which celebrates the legacy of late Beam Master Distiller Booker Noe and the founding of his namesake brand three decades ago.

Booker's 30th Anniversary Bourbon (62.9% ABV) has been produced using 19 Year Old and 16 Year Old, Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskies, which were aged specifically with Booker's legacy in mind under the watchful eye of 7th Generation Master Distiller and Booker's son, Fred Noe.

In the late 1980's, Booker Noe set out to create his version of the perfect whiskey – one that offered a full-bodied taste profile, aged between six and eight years, bottled at its natural proof with robust flavours of vanilla.

Commenting on the launch, Fred Noe, said: "It's a great honour to release Booker's 30th Anniversary in commemoration of my Dad and the path he paved when he introduced the world to Booker's Bourbon," said Fred Noe. "When we first started talking about an anniversary batch, I knew it would have to be something special, and during my final tasting of this extra aged liquid, I knew Dad would have been pleased. I'm proud to carry on his legacy every day and to share this special release in honour of the damn fine whiskey he created 30 years ago."

Booker's 30th Anniversary Bourbon, is now available across the US, in extremely limited quantities, for a RRP of $199.99 – 750ml bottle.
