The Small Batch Bourbon Collection represents the very best in bourbon, each handcrafted in limited quantities using time-honoured recipes. These special recipes allow each Small Batch Bourbon to be distinctively different. As Booker Noe, Jim Beam's grandson and master distiller emeritus says: "This is bourbon the way it used to be, the way it was meant to be." This range includes Basil Hayden, Bookers and Knob Creek Sipping History: Named after Baker Beam, grand nephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker's(R) Bourbon is seven-years-old and hand-bottled at 107 proof. Baker's Bourbon is made with a Beam family recipe preferred by Baker Beam, who has been making bourbon for more than 20 years.

Dating back to 18th Century Germany, this honey liqueur recipe was originally concocted to lure bears out of their dwellings by hunters & fur trappers. Originally called Ba¨renfang (‘Bear Trap’), this drinkable honey was not only enticing to the bear, but soon became the beverage of choice to the bear hunter as well. This highly alluring concoction has since been refined to be the premium liqueur that exists today. Made with the highest concentration of all-natural honey from the Yucatan Peninsula, Ba¨renja¨ger is in a class of its own. Additionally, at 70 proof, it is the perfect addition to any cocktail in need of an all-natural sweeter with a little kick.
Basil Hayden's is unequalled in that it utilizes twice as much rye in it as the other bourbons in the Collection. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails such as a Juicy Basil and Basil Bubbly.
