Bakers 7 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. In order to encourage westward expansion, Virginia issued pioneers who agreed to settle in Kentucky County "corn writs," which granted the pioneers 60 acres of land if they agreed to settle in Kentucky and start farming corn.After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into Whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in Whiskey production for the eponymous company.Bakers 7 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is named after Baker Beam, the grand nephew of of the legendary Jim Beam. The bourbon is made from a mash dominated by corn and fermented using a special strain of jug yeast that has been in the Beam family for over six decades. Following fermentation, the bourbon is distilled and then matured in new, American oak casks for a minimum of seven years. As a result, the bourbon has an aroma of honeyed fruit, creamy vanilla and caramel. The aroma gives way to notes of roasted nuts, candied fruits, vanilla, toffee and milk chocolate. The finish is rich and lasting, with sweet and spicy flavors mingling with each other.Bakers 7 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition twice. In addition, it earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast, which called it "superb" and "highly recommended."Pick up a bottle of this superb bourbon today!
