Jim Beam announced the release of Jim Beam Repeal Batch, a non-chill filtered, 86-proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey inspired by the same liquid produced by the Beam family following Prohibition’s repeal. This limited edition offering, with a label inspired by post-Prohibition Jim Beam bottlings from the 1930s, celebrates the 85th anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal and the perseverance James B. Beam put into rebuilding the Jim Beam distillery in 1933 – a feat accomplished in only 120 days.
After a 13-year hiatus from the bourbon industry during Prohibition, and at nearly 70 years old, James B. Beam and his family rebuilt the distillery in Clermont by hand to get the family business up and running once again. Today, Jim Beam is the best-selling bourbon in the world.
Jim Beam Repeal Batch is aged four years, similar to Jim Beam Bourbon, however this unique liquid is non-chill filtered, resulting in a bourbon with fuller mouthfeel and tasting notes that include char, oak and caramelized tones. It has a light amber color, with an aroma that carries oaky notes, balanced with light vanilla and a hint of brown spice.
Jim Beam Repeal Batch is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a signature cocktail, such as the whiskey punch cocktail, which includes bourbon, Italian vermouth, pineapple syrup and lemon juice. This exclusive offering can be found for a limited time at select retailers nationwide on shelves alongside Jim Beam Original and other premium offerings.
