Knob Creek, a brand of Beam Suntory, announced the addition of an age statement to its Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey. This seven-year age statement is a testament to the craftsmanship, patience and care behind its super-premium whiskey and reinforces the brand’s dedication to producing world-class whiskies for its consumers, the company says.

“My dad Booker Noe created Knob Creek with the intention of crafting a full-flavored whiskey without shortcuts, and Knob Creek has continued to set that standard for more than 30 years,” said Fred Noe, Booker’s son and seventh generation Master Distiller, in a statement. “We are excited to continue his legacy with the addition of an age statement on our Knob Creek Rye Whiskey. I’m excited for whiskey fans to taste it, and I know Dad would be proud.”

This update to the brand’s core rye expression offers fans the same Knob Creek Rye taste profile they know and love, but with the whiskey now guaranteed to be aged for a minimum of seven years. This strengthens the whiskey’s depth of character due to the extra time in the barrel and enhances notes of the American Rye spice, sweet vanilla and oak that is characteristic of Knob Creek Rye.

Knob Creek 7 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey now is available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $36.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
