Jim Beam Repeal Batch Bourbon Whiskey
On December 5th, 1933, the 18th Amendment was repealed, ending Prohibition in the U.S. After 13 years without distillation, James B. Beam could finally distill his family's bourbon once again. At nearly 70 years old, Jim and his family rebuilt the Murphy-Barber distillery in Clermont by hand in just 120 days, getting the family business up and running. By 1935, Beam bourbon, alongside the family's Pre-Prohibition brand Old Tub, was being sold to honor the family's efforts and making the Beams the First Family of Bourbon. 85 years and 15 million barrels later, Jim Beam is the World's No. 1 Bourbon with a recipe that stays true to the roots of that followed by Jim himself. Jim Beam Repeal Batch - Celebrating the 85th anniversary of Prohibition's Repeal, the heritage of the Beam family's dedication to the bourbon industry, and the perseverance of James B. Beam himself with this limited time offering. This unique bottling is 86-proof and non-chill filtered for a fuller taste that hearkens back to the flavor of post-Prohibition whiskey and comes with a label inspired by post Prohibition Jim Beam White bottlings from the 1930s. Jim Beam Repeal Batch is a reminder of the rich story and influence of the Jim Beam brand on the history of bourbon.
