Clermont, KY (September 24, 2013) This fall, Knob Creek® Bourbon is adding to its award-winning portfolio with the introduction of the brands first ever flavor-innovation, Knob Creek® Smoked Maple Bourbon. Created in honor of Knob Creek® Bourbon founder Booker Noe, this new expression is made using the big, full flavor of Knob Creek® Bourbon along with hints of maple and a touch of smoke to create a truly unique flavor expression that lives up to Bookers traditions and the Knob Creek® name.
Knob Creek® Smoked Maple Bourbon is inspired by my dads passion for innovation, said Fred Noe, seventh-generation Beam Master Distiller and 2013 Bourbon Hall of Fame Inductee. In addition to his love for crafting and distilling quality bourbon, he also enjoyed smoking meats in the smokehouse at his home and even crafting his own maple syrup from the sugar maples on the family property in Bardstown. Smoked Maple brings these three flavors of smoke, maple and bourbon together to honor Bookers legacy and his quest for big flavor.
Bottled at 90-proof, Knob Creek® Smoked Maple Bourbon is best enjoyed neat, or with an ice cube or two. It also makes an excellent after dinner drink for those who prefer to sip and savor a nice whiskey with dessert. But in the words of Booker Noe, drink it any damn way you please.
