Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
Baker’s is one of Beam Suntory’s ‘small batch series’ bourbons. Named after Baker Beam, grandnephew of Jim Beam himself, Baker’s utilises a special strain of jug yeast that gives this whiskey its silky smooth texture. What is jug yeast you ask? Jug yeast refers to the distiller’s yeast starter of unique wild yeasts that are fed and kept in a cool place, hidden away from those who might be looking to steal it.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Deep mahogany.
Nose: Lots of vanilla and caramel with hints of orchard fruit.
Taste: Silky créme brulee, hazelnuts and caramel.
Finish: Vanilla notes from the smooth oak tannins.
Overall: Rich, slightly nutty bourbon.

Gift

Get this bourbon if you’re buying for a Cognac or brandy drinker and looking to get something a bit different. Baker’s 7 is also very smooth considering its alcohol content, making it a good choice for people new to drinking straight whisky or bourbons in general.

RECOMMENDATIONS
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Baker’s 7, you could also try Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek 9 or Basil Hayden’s 8.

Connoisseur

Distilling was most likely brought to present-day Kentucky in the late 18th century by Scots, Scots-Irish, and other settlers (including English, Irish, Welsh, German, and French) who began to farm the area in earnest. The origin of bourbon as a distinct form of whiskey is not well documented. As you will see across this shop, there are many conflicting legends and claims, some more credible than others.

DISTILLERY
Jim Beam Distillery.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Founded by a family of German Immigrants who ‘Americanised’ their second name from Boehm to Beam. Distilling began in 1795. Prohibition forced closure but business resumed again in 1933.

ABOUT THE LIQUID
Baker’s Bourbon is distilled at a lower proof, barrelled and aged in small batches, allowing the bourbon to pull more toasted nut, fruit & vanilla flavour from the oak.

INGREDIENTS
Corn, Malted Barley, Rye.
