Press Release

Knob Creek® Bourbon is excited to announce a new, limited edition bourbon in its award-winning* portfolio, Knob Creek® 18 Year Old. Three decades ago, Booker Noe, grandson of Jim Beam and Sixth Generation Master Distiller, set out to define the standards for pre-prohibition style bourbon and introduced Knob Creek. Today, we honor his legacy with the most mature age statement to-date. This exceptional full-flavored product is aged twice as long as our flagship bourbon and bottled at 100 proof, offering a complex yet balanced liquid profile. Our bourbon owes its rich copper color and deep notes of caramelized oak to its extensive aging in our Kentucky rackhouses. This limited-edition release celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Knob Creek, a milestone measured by time, effort, and commitment to the never-ending pursuit of craft. Knob Creek upholds the highest principles of bourbon-making with lower proof distillation, rigid warehouse barrel selection, and patient maturation for full flavor extraction. Experience Knob Creek® 18 Year Old for yourself and raise a glass to the pursuit of craft.


Knob Creek 18 Year Old is our oldest release to date, delivering flavorful notes of caramelized oak and sweet vanilla with a warm finish, best enjoyed neat or on the rocks to fully experience the complex yet balanced flavors of this full-bodied liquid.

COLOR: Rich copper tones with auburn hues
AROMA: Brown sugar and aged oak, with notes of char and caramel
TASTE: Full-bodied with notes of caramelized oak and hints of sweet vanilla and baking spices

Knob Creek has set the standard for super-premium whiskey for three decades by crafting extraordinary full- flavored bourbon with a rich taste. Knob Creek bourbons and ryes are patiently aged to perfection in new maximum charred American Oak barrels to impart the biggest and fullest flavor on our whiskey. No matter the expression, Knob Creek is crafted without shortcuts and embodies the pre-prohibition style that founding distiller Booker Noe created in 1992. Since then, Knob Creek has lived up to such standards with the introduction of Knob Creek® Straight Rye Whiskey in 2012. In recent years, Knob Creek has expanded its rye portfolio, introducing Knob Creek® Single Barrel Select Rye Whiskey (115 proof). In 2020, Knob Creek expanded its bourbon portfolio with the introduction of Knob Creek 12 Year Old Bourbon (100 proof), and a limited time release of Knob Creek 15 Year Old Bourbon (100 proof).


Knob Creek 18 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey is available nationwide at a suggested retail price of $169.99 for a 750ml bottle.
