“Booker’s Bluegrass is a reflection of just that, and is a true testament to Dad’s larger-than-life personality. Whenever there was bluegrass music, he could be found dancing front-and-center or trying his hand at playing with the band.”

Each batch in the 2016 collection will feature a one-of-a-kind label and batch name that offers an unprecedented look into Booker’s life, both at the distillery and with friends and family.
