BATCH NOTES (Provided by James B Beam Distilling): Booker’s “Noe Strangers Batch” has a nice color coming from the time it rested in charred white oak barrels. The aroma has vanilla and brown spice, with a sweetness that continues upon the first sip. The initial heat isn’t overwhelming and leaves a taste that’s balanced with a long and warm finish, perfect for the colder months ahead.
Story Behind The Name – “Noe Strangers Batch“
[Material provided by Beam PR]
This batch celebrates the genuine, social nature of 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe, and the way he could turn a stranger into a friend for life in no time.
Booker’s way of making friends was second nature to him. When Booker took a liking to the products that a salesman was selling, he
would call his wife and say, “Set an extra plate at the table, I’m inviting this salesman to dinner!”
In another instance, Booker was invited to a rally for the Blue Knights® Motorcycle Club, an international brotherhood of active and retired law enforcement officers who share a passion for motorcycle riding. There he struck up a conversation with some of the members, and the next day, he invited more than 300 of them over for lunch.
Booker taught his son, 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe, to ‘treat others how he would want to be treated’ — a lesson that the
Noe family holds true to this day. Like they always say at the distillery: come as friends, leave as family.
