No barrels are created equal.
When Booker Noe created Knob Creek®, he revived full-flavored, pre-prohibition style bourbon. Each bottle stands as a hard-earned piece of bourbon history. And each barrel? Well, each one is a story all its own, uniquely influenced by nature, time and its individual journey.
That’s why Knob Creek® Single Barrel Reserve remains Knob Creek®’s purest expression of old style flavor. Each bottle remains unblended, highlighting the singular characteristics of our finest hand-selected barrels.
Our Knob Creek® Single Barrel Experience is a program that allows individual retailers to personally claim their own barrel. Participants can even make the trip to Clermont to get their hands dirty with their own one-of-a-kind bourbon.
A BARREL LIKE NO OTHER
