Jim Beam post prohibition-inspired bourbon

Beam Suntory-owned Jim Beam has released a new limited-edition bourbon to commemorate the 85th-anniversary of the repeal of prohibition in the US.

Jim Beam Repeal Batch is a non-chill filtered, 86-proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey inspired by the drink produced by the Beam family immediately following Prohibition’s repeal.

According to Jim Beam, the non-chill filter process creates a bourbon with a fuller mouthfeel and char, oak and caramelised flavour notes, as well as a light amber colour and a vanilla aroma.

Fred Noe, Jim Beam master distiller said: “For the 85th anniversary of Repeal Day, we wanted to release a bourbon inspired by our heritage and dedicated to the hard work my great-grandfather put into rebuilding our family business after Prohibition.

“Jim Beam Repeal Batch pays tribute to all the generations of Beams that came before me.”

Jim Beam Repeal Batch is available for a limited time at selected US retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $17.99.
