Booker’s Believes You Should Flavor Your Water With Bourbon


Whiskey icon Booker Noe apparently liked his bourbon so much that used to flavor his water with it. That’s the inspiration behind his eponymous brand’s latest release, Booker’s Kentucky Tea Batch.

Booker’s Kentucky Tea Batch Bourbon is the third release in the brand’s 2022 collection. It arrives at a somewhat staggering 126.5 proof after aging for 7 years, 4 months, and 14 days. It is named after Booker Noe’s signature drink, which he called Kentucky Tea.

As one could imagine, Booker loved the flavor of his namesake bourbon. Since the flavor still pulls through when mixed with water, Booker would add one part bourbon to four parts water and enjoy his Kentucky Tea with dinner.

One night, when a reporter was at Booker’s house for supper, he asked why he drank Kentucky Tea. Booker shared that there was no reason to flavor his water with tea leaves when he could flavor his water with bourbon. It was that simple. He would drink it with a country ham or fish dinner and would talk about how the flavor notes of the Kentucky Tea was a perfect complement to the food.

Like all batches of Booker’s, the latest release was selected by Seventh Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe. Uncut and unfiltered, this batch offers a sweet vanilla aroma with more vanilla on the palate and lingering finish.

Booker’s Kentucky Tea Batch is now available nationwide and is priced at $89.99 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.

Back in June, Booker’s unveiled the first batch of its 2022 Collection — Booker’s Batch 2022-01, aka “Ronnie’s Batch”.
