• Knob Creek unveils first single-barrel

17 Feb

The Knob Creek distillery has just released its first-ever single barrel bourbon, Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve.

The new bourbon expression is naturally aged for a nine years and bottled at a very potent 60% alcohol by volume (120 proof)).

Each barrel of Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve is cut with water and bottled individually in order to preserve its integrity and unique flavor profile. This process allows for variations in taste, color and aroma in each batch of bourbon.

“We pay close attention to the barrels we select for Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve as we want to ensure that we’re bottling an extraordinary bourbon with a complex balance of aroma and taste,” said Fred Noe, seventh-generation Beam family distiller. “I recommend enjoying this new bourbon neat, on the rocks or cut with a bit of water in order to best appreciate its depth and fullness of flavor.”

The new bourbon is available in limited quantities and retails for a suggested price of $39.99 for the 750ml bottle.
