2017 - 01 TOMMY’S BATCH
MASTER DISTILLER NOTES
“I'm proud to share the first of four batches in the Booker's® Bourbon 2017 Batch Collection, Batch 2017-01, also called Booker's "Tommy's Batch." I’m especially pleased to release this special batch as our first, as it is named in tribute to Tommy Crume, who started his career at the distillery as a young man and worked closely alongside Dad for decades. They spent so much time together that we used to joke that he was like a second son to Dad!
Over all those years, Tommy learned just how Dad liked things to be done around the distillery, especially when it came to his namesake bourbon and eventually worked his way up to Distillery Manager at the Clermont, Ky. plant, helping to make sure that everything continued to run just the way Dad would have wanted.
After almost 30 years with us, Tommy retired in 2016 and I know Dad would be honored to name the first batch of 2017 after his dear friend. I hope you'll join me in raising a glass of Booker's "Tommy's Batch" in celebration of Dad’s legacy and Tommy’s, too.”
