Old Tub Bottled In Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Old Tub Bottled In Bond 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 (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition). Today, Fred Noe a seventh-generation master distiller and the great-grandson of Colonel James B. Beam shepherds his family legacy forward.The Old Tub expression harkens back to the very beginnings of the Jim Beam brand. Old Tub predates Jim Beam Bourbon and was made 140 years ago. It was an unfiltered bourbon that would serve as the foundation for the enormous empire. This modern version is neither carbon nor chill-filtered, just like the original. Bottled-in-bond, this limited-edition expression sets a new bar in its price category.Grab your bottle today!
