Jim Beam introducing single-barrel bourbon, by the barrel

jpatton1@herald-leader.comDecember 19, 2013 


On Sept. 18, Beam Suntory is holding a 150th anniversary salute to its founder at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont.


Beginning in 2014, fans of Jim Beam can get a single-barrel version of the distillery's top-selling bourbon.

Starting in February, visitors to the American Stillhouse in Clermont will be able to hand-bottle their own Jim Beam Single Barrel. And by the end of next year, the distillery will let visitors select their own full barrel for purchase.

Jim Beam Single Barrel will be 95 proof, with a suggested retail price of $34.99 for 750 ml and will be available nationwide in March.
