225 years of experience goes into every bottle of Jim Beam Bourbon. An aging process of four years in new charred oak barrels gives Jim Beam its elegant, refined and smooth character. With a slightly spicy, oaky vanilla aroma, this medium-bodied bourbon brings mellow hints of caramel, vanilla, grain and oak flavor with a lightly sweet, toasted oak finish. Sip it neat, on the rocks or mix it up in any number of bourbon- or whiskey-centered cocktails like a Spring Breeze or Berry Julep. Jim Beam's extra aging creates an elegant, smooth and refined whiskey that pleases with every sip. After seven generations and 30 family members of master distillers, the Jim Beam family tradition continues today. In 2005, Frederick Booker Noe III, the great-grandson of Jim Beam, filled the 10 millionth barrel of Jim Beam, keeping the tradition of Jacob Beam alive for the next generation of bourbon drinkers.
