Knob Creek was created to restore the standards of pre-prohibition bourbon. The result is an undeniably big, full flavor that strikes your senses with a maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness, and a rich, woody, caramel flavor. Knob Creek Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is crafted in limited quantities and placed in only the deepest charred American Oak barrels to draw out the natural sugars fully. Then bottled it at an honest 100 proof to reflect the flavor, strength, and patience that defined pre-prohibition whiskey. Once you've grown into this full flavor, no other bourbon will do. That's when your palate refuses to take a step back, and you're ready for what Booker Noe envisioned real bourbon to be.
Knob Creek Bourbon was named after a little creek that runs south of the distillery, the same creek that Abraham Lincoln's childhood home ran. Booker Noe, 6th generation Beam, and master distiller emeritus created Knob Creek to reflect the strength, flavor, care, and patience that defined pre-prohibition bourbon. The bottle embodies the handmade look and feel of the turn-of-the-century bourbon as well. It is reminiscent of a bootlegger's flask with newspaper scrawled on the label, harkening back to the decade's old custom of wrapping bottles in the newspaper at the distillery.
Make a bolder classic cocktail, sip it neat, or open it up with a drop of water or filtered ice cubes. Enjoy it in whatever damn way you please!
