Jim Beam quality and profile with a greater depth and power at a value Bourbon fans will crave.

Aside from a short break in production during Prohibition — well, an "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 newbie, you know that Jim Beam is one of the largest produces of sweet American Whiskey in the world — making and marketing dozens of brands as a subsidiary of Beam Suntory.

Old Tub Bottled In Bond is a limited production run. But if it does well, you can expect it to become a staple for the line. And we have to tell you, this little gem is doing very well. It’s made from Jim Beam's signature mash bill, aged for four years in new oak and bottled unfiltered at 50% ABV. The word you need to focus on here is "unfiltered" — they mean it. In fact, they barely guarantee that you won’t find a wood chip or piece of charred oak in the bottle. But that’s part of the charm. And this little hidden Bourbon is a great value too.

Smartass Corner:
The Boehm 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.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
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.
