Jim Beam was the largest distillery that we visited. We drove by it each day as we went back and forth to work. This place has so many labels that I will just give an example of their products – Jim Beam, Booker, Knob Creek, Red Stag, Basil Hayden’s and much more.
Please let the know if you are a veteran or a dependent to a veteran because the tour will be free. The tours are a nice size, about 20 people per tour. They also have a bus to bring you around the grounds due to the size of the property.
You can also buy drink tickets to buy drinks from the bar at the end of the tour. Each distillery will have a tasting. Jim Beam’s is unique. You are given an electronic drink card. You can try up to three pours. Edonna does not drink. This means that I usually get my pours plus her pours. I was feeling pretty good by time we left Jim Beam. Luckily, I have built in designated driver.
My favorite pours at Jim Beam were – Jim Beam Rye, Knob Creek Rye, Basil Hayden’s and Jim Beam Black.
