Four finely crafted Bourbons from Beam Suntory- Basil Hayden’s, Bakers, Bookers and Knob Creek have made their appearance at Singapore’s first ever Bourbon bar, The Beast.
A little more on each bourbon:
Basil Hayden’s is an impressive 200-year-old recipe.
Bakers is a recipe made with a special jug yeast that has been in the family for over 60 years.
Bookers is an uncut, unfiltered and straight-from-the-barrel Small Batch Bourbon.
Knob Creek is the longest aged Bourbon in the collection.
How do you spot an authentic Bourbon?
1. Must be made in America (currently about 95% is made in Kentucky)
2. Must use a brand new oak barrel that has been charred
3. Must use at least 51% corn or more by U.S. law
4. Must be distilled at less than 80% alcohol
Brand educator and resident mixologist at The Beast, Jamey Merkel says, “Bourbon is undergoing a renaissance in Southeast Asia with more consumers turning to the richly flavoured whiskey to add variety to their drinking repertoire. As they say, variety is the spice of life. With expert craftsmanship and an interesting 200 year history, Bourbon is due to increase its visibility as a laid back, relaxing spirit. ”
“With finely crafted Bourbons like Bookers, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden’s, and Bakers, you get not only a great cocktail ingredient but a smooth sipping whiskey”.
