Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. In order to encourage westward expansion, Virginia issued pioneers who agreed to settle in Kentucky County “corn writs,” which granted the pioneers 60 acres of land if they agreed to settle in Kentucky and start farming corn. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition). Today, Fred Noe — a seventh generation master distiller and the great grandson of Colonel James B. Beam — shepherds his family legacy forward. Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece is Fred Noe’s magnum opus. After hand-selecting extra-aged bourbons that were aging in the optimal positions of his rickhouse, Noe finished the bourbon in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. The sherry casks contributed unique notes of plums, dates, dark fruits and cherries to the bourbon, which complement its subtle touches of dark leather, moist tobacco, chocolate and coffee. Packaged in a luxury wooden case and bottled at 100 proof, “this bourbon expression from Jim Beam is the most exclusive, highest quality offering within the family” says Noe. Pick up a bottle today!
