The Small Batch Bourbon Collection®—comprised of Knob Creek®, Booker’s®, Basil Hayden’s® and Baker’s®—is a group of ultra-premium bourbon whiskies handcrafted in limited quantities from unique recipes, some dating back two centuries. They are carefully matured for exceptional quality.
Named after Baker Beam, grandnephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker’s® Bourbon honors the family’s long history and love for distilling.
Baker’s Bourbon is distilled at a lower proof and barreled & aged in small batches, allowing the bourbon to pull more toasted nut, fruit & vanilla flavor from the barrel wood. Today, Baker’s is still made using this very technique & is aged only in our most select rackhouses for a robust bourbon flavor with a silky, smooth finish.
Essential Elements - Sweet blackberries, cloves, orange zest.
Appearance - Deep red with an enduring lacy white head.
Aroma - Sweet, pungent yet balanced clove, spicy yeast with a floral honey back.
Experience - Sweet and smooth with a full-bodied, dark berry wine character. Reminiscent of Spanish sangria and Garnacha grape wine. The creamy and carbonated mouthfeel finishes dry with a firm clove aftertaste.

"Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2018-4 “Kitchen Table,” according to those behind it, is the fourth and final bourbon to released under the Booker’s label this year. It is, like the other Booker’s whiskeys, a monster of an uncut bottling at 128 proof. It is 6 years, 8 months and 7 days old, being “produced on three different production dates and stored in six different locations.” The breakdown of what came from where in the various Beam aging warehouses is as follows:
- 7% came from the 4th floor of 9-story warehouse E
- 14% came from the 5th floor of 9-story warehouse E
- 4% came from the 6th floor of 9-story warehouse E
- 24% came from the 5th floor of 9-story warehouse J
- 44% came from the 6th floor of 9-story warehouse J
- 7% came from the 6th floor of 9-story warehouse D"

This was a collaboration between Chris from Westport Wine & Whiskey in Louisville and Joshua from PlumpJack Wine & Spirits.
This brandy was aged for 2 years in a Woodford cask then another 2 years in Oloroso sherry cask.
It has a symphony of flavors across a spectrum of flavor profiles. Dried rasins and almond marzipan flavors from the Oloroso sherry cask meld effortlessly with the burnt sugar and spice notes from the bourbon barrel on the finish.

"This barrel clocks in just under 10yrs old and shows a great balance of maturity and expression for its age. It is everything you want a great Elijah Craig barrel to be. In the nose, rich notes of caramel, vanilla beans and oak show themselves first, but below that is a concert of savory flavors like cigar leaf, clove and peanut shells. The palate dances back and forth between the sweetness and spice, with a baking spice profile of cloves, allspice, mace and cinnamon predominating. More air brings out some higher toned fruit flavors like dried apricots and mangos, yet they remain anchored by the savory spices. Smooth and long lasting on the finish, this is a great bourbon to sip on the regular or use in your favorite cocktails. Just the right amount of complexity without becoming too pretentious, it remains very drinkable for the novice and connoisseur alike."
With an infusion of local roast coffee, a dash of cocoa nibs and touch of seasonal sorcery, our signature Velvet Merlin milk stout has been transformed into Mocha Merlin for fall and winter enjoyment. This beer is brewed with the Colombia La Granadilla blend from our friends and neighbors at HoneyCo Coffee Roasters. The Colombia La Granadilla coffee meshes perfectly with the chocolaty character from the cocoa nibs, providing an oatmeal stout experience like no other. A touch of lactose "milk sugar" provides suggestion of rounded sweetness on the finish.
Four Roses Small Batch Select balances notes of candied fruit with warmth and spice for a nuanced, mouth-coating flavor enjoyable to both casual drinkers and connoisseurs. Non-chill filtered and 104 proof

"For this variant we aged Bourbon County Stout in rye whiskey barrels then added raspberry and blackberry juice and puree from Michigan and Washington. The result is complex jammy fruit notes that are prominent, but well integrated with the caramel and chocolate flavors of the beer and spicy rye character from the barrels."
Double Negative pours jet black with burnt orange highlights. A long lasting tan head leaves abundant lacing. Aromas bursting from the glass include espresso, bitter chocolate, caramel, black currant and blueberry. Creamy and viscous on the palate, the flavor initially follows the nose. A pop of smooth bitterness comes after, and then a lingering, roasty finish.
Hill 88 is our double IPA and all double IPAs are not created equal. Ours has an all malt backbone that lends a touch of sweetness to an assertive hop profile. And we use a unique hopping technique called Omakase-style hopping. Hill 88 is named after one of the highest spots in the Headlands where the Nike missile launch pads still sit. We might have had one or two beers up there back in the early days. Maybe.

It takes 16 pounds of apples to produce this Straight Apple Brandy. The toasted apples on the nose were pure and made us want to make an Old Fashioned using this brandy...so we did. What a wonderful alternative to Whiskey in that grand cocktail.

Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Premium corn, rye, and barley grains, traditional copper pot still distillation, and premium charred American White Oak barrels blend together to give our Bourbon a unique complexity. Aromas of allspice and apple fill the nose. The palate is pervaded by flavors of caramel, banana, biscuit, cinnamon, and molasses giving way to a robust finish. Best when warming your belly near the fire.
Straight Rye Whiskey. A glass full of our rye whiskey will offer the nose cherries, tobacco and lemon zest. A sip will reveal a sweet and spicy balance of flavors including raspberries, toffee, cloves and ginger. Expect a strong finish that will leave vanilla on your palette for a while. Sip straight, or use this complex combination of flavors to mix an intriguing cocktail. May we suggest a Manhattan tonight? Or maybe an Old Fashion? Or maybe… any cocktail that uses whiskey.

This medium-full bodied Bourbon has a bouquet of vanilla, caramel and cherry. The spicy kick of a high rye content is balanced by sweet, smooth corn and the unmistakably silky viscosity of organic Washington soft white winter wheat. Matured in 53-gallon barrels, this meticulously handcrafted five-year Bourbon displays notes of brown sugar and maple syrup without the woody harshness that can result from extended micro-barrelling. Its mellow tannins and complex layers unfold into a finish of buttery oak, toffee and again the brightness of fresh cherries.
Thick, rich coffee-brown head. Tightly packed foam leaving incredible lacing on the glass. Black as night, zero light penetration apparent in my glass. Not around the edges, not near the head. Heavy amounts of roast are readily apparent all over the nose. Notes of bittersweet dark chocolate and French Roast coffee are undeniable. Earthy floral notes are detectable, alluding to the number of hops used to balance the sweetness of the beer.
However, because of the overwhelming amount of dark roast character, they’re blended perfectly into the beer like a subtle string section supporting the brass instrument fanfare in a symphony.
Bold, dark roasted malt character washes over the palate. The notes of dark roasted coffee, like Italian or French roast, immediately hit the taste-buds, with strong flavors that mimic cacao nibs. They’re balanced almost immediately by that slightly earthy-floral hop characteristic. Almost like good high-quality chocolate or dark roast coffee. That hop characteristic appears around mid-palate, creating an instant balance of the sweetness this malt bill had to provide.
Dark roast upfront, instantly balanced by a hop presence, which leaves a full mouthfeel without being cloying. The finish is somewhat dry for a stout of this ABV, but with more than enough “linger” to allow for the roast and hop aromas to keep resonating after the sip has moved on.
Roasty, Balanced, Traditionally Perfected.

With Breaking & Entering Bourbon, our plunder is your pleasure. To make B&E, St. George distillers Lance Winters and Dave Smith went deep into the rickhouses of Kentucky’s most venerable bourbon distilleries and brought several hundred barrels back to blend at our distillery in Alameda. The result? A criminally delicious bourbon with a storied Kentucky pedigree that would’ve been impossible for any one distillery to produce on its own.
Breaking & Entering is a bright, spicy, not-too sweet bourbon characterized by warm breakfast notes of maple, banana, butter, cinnamon, and cloves. Cherry cola and eucalyptus/menthol are also present.
and a hint of fruit flavor. With 100 calories, 2g carbs, and 5% alc/vol, White Claw comes in 5 fruit flavors.
