Basil Hayden’s: Bottled at 80 proof; utilizes twice as much rye in it as the other bourbons in the Small Batch Collection giving it a gentle yet spicy flavor
The Small Batch Bourbon Collection®—comprised of Knob Creek®, Booker’s®, Basil Hayden’s® and Baker’s®—is a group of ultra-premium bourbon whiskies handcrafted in limited quantities from unique recipes, some dating back two centuries. They are carefully matured for exceptional quality.
Booker Noe, grandson of the legendary Jim Beam, created The Small Batch Collection and in doing so is credited with establishing the category of super-premium bourbons. Booker took great care in crafting his bourbon, and the Booker’s Bourbon bottle even features a label written in Booker Noe’s own handwriting. If you look closely, you will actually notice a small error. There is no mistake about the premium quality of his collection, however.
