This latest release, which follows on from last year’s Little Book ‘Noe Simple Task’ and 2017’s Little Book ‘The Easy’ bottlings, is said to deliver on Fred Noe's passion for creating one-of-a-kind blends, while also honouring his storied family roots in Kentucky.

Commenting on the news, Fred Noe, said: "The Road Home is about going back to your roots - literally and figuratively. With the birth of my son this year I spent a lot more time at home, reflecting often on family and our legacy. I wanted to create something that honoured the legacy and values passed down to me by my family. Whenever I drive down the road to the distillery, the same one my granddaddy Booker drove down, I'm reminded of his adventurous spirit, especially of his creation of the Small Batch Collection in a time when no one was drinking premium bourbon. I like to think he passed that same spirit along to me, which ultimately led me to blending."

Little Book Chapter 3 ‘The Road Home’, is now available across the US in limited quantatites, from specialist reatilers, for a RRP of $124.99 – 750ml.
