Frederick Booker Noe, II (Frederick Booker Noe, II)

Frederick Booker Noe, II

Business Magnate, Folk Figure. Master Distiller Emeritus, grandson of Jim Beam. Known to his friends as “Booker,” he was the sixth generation of his family to head the distillery that was founded in 1795. His picture (along with his five other antecedants) is on the label of Jim Beam bourbon. In 1988, he released “Booker’s Bourbon,” a premium small batch bourbon, bottled directly from the barrel without filtering. This revolutionized the industry and led to the demand for “gourmet” bourbons. He passed away in Bardstown, Kentucky.
