Going back to the 18th century is when Jim Beam had began producing one of the finest whiskey's around. It had began when Johannes "Reginald" Beam who was a Kentucky farmer was a whiskey producer in a unique bourbon style. To make it unique he had used his own corn crops, and made sure everything was fresh from the beginning.
It was in 1795 when he had sold his first barrels, calling it the Old Jake Beam. Then his son had taken over the business, giving it a wider audience through the industrial revolution. It was James Beam the 4th generation of the family who made the major impact with his name appearing on all bottles. Now you can see Jim Beam all over the world selling to consumers daily at major high. If you haven't tasted the bourbon it is a must have!
