Named for a truck-driving, motorcycle-riding, bourbon-loving, hardworking whiskey man, Baker’s Single Barrel Bourbon is a singular experience. A big, bold bourbon that was created by one legend to honour another. Every drop of bourbon in a Baker’s bottle comes from one single barrel. And once those bottles are gone, they’re gone. Which means you’ll discover layers of unique, subtle nuances in every bottle you pick up. That’s what makes Baker’s so special.

Baker has always believed the ideal bourbon is made according to three fundamental rules: First, it’s aged at least seven years because that’s the sweet spot for getting big vanilla notes from the charred oak barrel. Second, a great bourbon carries substantial flavour. And third, when he tries it, he better like it. These rules might seem simple, but they make for one hell of a bourbon.

This Baker's 7 Year Old Single Barrel Bourbon will impress any bourbon aficionado. Makes a great gift. Buy here in our online liquor store and get delivered direct to your door. 

Baker Beam was born with bourbon in his blood and raised on the grounds of the Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont, Kentucky – where he began his career. Baker started working as a night watchman during high school and did every job imaginable before working his way up to becoming Jim Beam’s distiller.

Never one for the spotlight, Baker was more comfortable with a wrench and a flashlight doing whatever it took to keep the bourbon flowing. When he retired after 38 years, he knew every square inch of the Beam distillery like the back of his hardworking hands.

For bourbon, there’s no family tree with more branches than the Beam’s. One of the most famous is Baker’s cousin, Booker Noe – larger than life, outspoken, charismatic and the undeniable father of small batch bourbon.

While Baker became irreplaceable at Jim Beam, Booker was hard at work in Boston, Kentucky, on a top-secret project, the Small Batch Collection. One of the first super premium bourbons Booker would make in this collection – Baker’s – was for his favourite cousin.

Quiet and independent-minded, Baker had a way of getting things done nobody else could. Believe it or not, back in his day, there weren’t a lot of manuals and resources about running a distillery. It took hard work, dedication and often the ability to fly by the seat of your pants – which Baker mastered while keeping the Clermont distillery afloat during some tough years.
