Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey
Jim Beam is an American brand of bourbon whiskey produced in Clermont, Kentucky, by Beam Suntory. It is one of the best-selling brands of bourbon in the world. Since 1795, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the company that produces the brand.
The brand name became “Jim Beam” in 1943 in honor of James B. Beam, who rebuilt the business after Prohibition ended. Previously produced by the Beam family and later owned by the Fortune Brands holding company, the brand was purchased by Suntory Holdings in 2014.
Bourbon whiskey distillers must follow government standards for production. By law (27 CFR 5), any “straight” bourbon must be: produced in the United States; made of a grain mix of at least 51% corn; distilled at no higher than 160 proof (80% ABV); free of any additives (except water to reduce proof for aging and bottling); aged in new, charred white oak barrels; entered into the aging barrels at no higher than 125 proof (62.5% ABV), aged for a minimum of 2 years, and bottled at no less than 80 proof (40% ABV).Recent Posts:

Jim Beam starts with water filtered naturally by the limestone shelf found in Central Kentucky. A strain of yeast used since the end of Prohibition is added to a tank with the grains to create what is known as “dona yeast”, used later in the fermentation process. Hammermills grind the mix of corn, rye and barley malt to break it down for easier cooking.
The mix is then moved into a large mash cooker where water and set back are added. The “set back” is a portion of the old mash from the previous distillation—the key step of the sour mash process, ensuring consistency from batch to batch.
