Nearly 35 years ago, Booker Noe II gave Fred his first job at the distillery as the Night Shift Bottling Line Supervisor. From there Fred worked his way up, learning every job at the distillery.
In 2007 he was named Master Distiller of Jim Beam. Under his guidance, Jim Beam has become the #1 selling bourbon in the world. And in 2017, Booker’s Rye Whiskey was named World Whisky of the Year.*
