A textbook high Rye Bourbon.

Aside from a short break in production during prohibition — well, and “official” and “legal” break as far as the government knows — Jim Beam has been producing Bourbon Whiskey since 1795 in Clermont, Kentucky. Since then, an unbroken string of seven generations of the Beam family have worked there. And unless you are a Bourbon virgin, you know that Jim Beam is one of the largest produces of sweet American Whiskey in the world — marketing dozens of brands as a subsidiary of Beam Suntory.

Today, high Rye Bourbons are all the rage… because they are awesome on their own and perfect for classic craft cocktails. But there is no way the folks at Jim Beam could have guessed that when they distilled Jim Beam High Rye 11 YO Kentucky Straight Bourbon way back in 2004. Call it magic, call it luck, call it anything you like. We call it a classic, textbook high Rye Bourbon with a rich, full body that smells like it was made in a Christmas bakery … and yes, that’s a good thing.

Smartass Corner 
The Böhm family changed their name to “Beam” when they emigrated from Germany. Johannes "Reginald" Beam settled in Kentucky and set up his distillery — which he called “Old Tub” — and sold his Bourbon under the name “Old Jake Beam.” The product was renamed “Jim Beam” immediately after Prohibition in honor of the man who fired up the distillery once again.

Interestingly, every master distiller at Heaven Hill Distillery since its founding, have also been members of the Beam Family.
Perhaps because of the family ties, when there was a serious fire at the Heaven Hill Distillery that seriously damaged production capacity, Jim Beam was one of two distilleries that graciously let their “friendly competitor” use some of their excess capacity, until repairs were completed.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
