Booker’s Bourbon Launches Pigskin Batch

Booker’s Bourbon Launches Pigskin Batch

Booker’s Bourbon has unveiled its final bolting of the year, 2020-03 “Pigskin Batch.” The new offering follows the releases of 2020-01 “Granny’s Batch” and 2020-02 “Boston Batch.”

The new Booker’s Bourbon 2020-03 Pigskin Batch, is a six-plus year old Bourbon that is uncut and unfiltered. 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe personally tastes and selects every batch of Booker’s Bourbon before it is bottled to ensure that it matches Booker’s personal preferences for a robust and full- bodied whiskey. It has been bottled at an impressive 127.3 proof, and should be enjoyed neat, over ice, or with a couple drops of water. As is the tradition with these releases, each unique name refers to a part of the whiskey’s history.

Pigskin Batch is a nod to sixth-generation Master Distiller Booker Noe’s love of American football, the company says, which over time became a family affair. He played both tackle and kicker on his high school team.“He was quick for his size — standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing close to 300 pounds — and strong from working as a farm hand growing up. Although he ultimately never pursued a college football career, he was talented enough to practice with the team when he attended the University of Kentucky as a freshman – a rare honor in those days,” according to the Boston, Kentucky-based brand. Anyone who knew Booker knew his love of football. Whether it was his favorite team on TV, or his son and grandson playing in the backyard, Booker loved watching a game.

Booker’s Pigskin Batch delivers aromas of brown sweets and slight vanilla notes. It has a beautiful light brown color and “the flavor is big and bold with a finish that is long and warm.”

The Whiskey is now available at specialty retailers nationwide for the price of  $90 per 750 ml bottle.
