Jim Beam Releases Limited-Edition "Distiller's Masterpiece" Bourbon Just In Time For The Races





DEERFIELD, Ill., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For many, the first Saturday in May is a rare opportunity to watch the most elite horses in the racing industry. But this year, it represents another rare opportunity – a chance for whiskey connoisseurs to get their hands on a limited-edition release from Jim Beam.

Today, Beam Inc. [NYSE:BEAM], a global leader in premium spirits, and Jim Beam® Bourbon, the world's No. 1 bourbon, announced its release of Jim Beam® Distiller's Masterpiece, an extra-aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrel finished in Pedro Ximenez (PX)  sherry casks.

"My family has been making bourbon in Kentucky since 1795," said seventh-generation Master Distiller and Jim Beam's great-grandson Fred Noe. "This is a great time to celebrate another Kentucky icon – horseracing – with the release of some of our most exclusive liquid. The catch is that you've got to come out to Kentucky and see us to get a bottle."

Bourbon At Its BestThis bourbon expression from Jim Beam is the most exclusive, highest quality offering within the Beam family. Only available at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky., it is:

  • Extra-aged in the optimal rack-house position, determined by Master Distiller, Fred Noe
  • Finished in PX sherry casks, adding a dynamic to its taste that other bourbons can't offer
  • Smooth, rich, full-bodied and mature
  • Packaged in a luxury wooden case
  • 100-proof and priced at $199.99

Jim Beam's American StillhouseThe first stop on the Kentucky bourbon trail, Jim Beam's Kentucky distillery is nestled in the rolling foothills of Clermont, Ky., just 30 minutes from Louisville. Visitors get an up-close and personal look at how the world's finest bourbon is crafted, aged and perfected as they learn all there is to know about this classic spirit.
