It’s no secret that Baker’s Bourbon, the least popular offering in Jim Beam’s Small Batch Collection, hasn’t fostered much of a following in recent years. But if you haven’t taken the time to partake in the once-admonished spirit, that might change with the announcement of the company’s first exclusive single barrel offering.
This fall, Baker’s Bourbon will join the likes of its esteemed partner, Knob Creek, in the realm of single barrel offerings, bringing a seven-year statement and an able-bodied 107 proof whiskey to interested connoisseurs. Although the spirit retains a moderately high proof, it’s spent most of its life fulfilling a niche role in many aficionado’s liquor cabinets, bringing an oddly-placed age and proof to the table — both literally and figuratively. For around $55, you’ll be able to pick up a bottle of Baker’s single barrel offering at the end of this year.
