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 caramelized flavor notes, as well as a light amber color and a vanilla aroma.
Fred Noe, 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.
“ Repeal Batch pays tribute to all the generations of Beams that came before me.”
JB Repeal Batch is available for a limited time at selected US retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $17.99.
