True to its American roots, United States Congress declared Bourbon "America's Native Spirit" in 1964. Bourbon is like whiskey’s “sweet spot” because corn is a sweet grain - the more corn, the sweeter the whiskey. It is also tougher to make bourbon than whiskey. In fact, the US Government actually has standards for “Straight Bourbon Whiskey.” The Beam family has been in the business of making outstanding bourbons for over 200 years. First started by early-American settler Jacob Beam in 1795, Jim Beam has grown to be the world's number 1 selling Bourbon whiskey.
Today, Jim Beam is made under the continued supervision of the 6th and 7th generation of the Beam family. Jim Beam has gained a broad appeal worldwide with contemporary adults who appreciate the authenticity of genuine bourbon. Jim Beam mirrors the self-confident, masculine personality of its consumers.More Spirits Visit Website
