Jim Beam American Post
In 1795 Jacob Beam, a farmer grain mill operator perfected the recipe of Jim Beam bourbon whiskey in Kentucky. He arrived in Kentucky in 1778 from Germany, carrying the necessary parts to make a copper still. Jacob settled near Dardin Creek, the original site where he first made his bourbon. Today, Booker Noe, grandson of Jim Beam and Fred Noe, great-grandson of Jim Beam and the global ambassador of the brand proudly continue the family tradition of making its bourbon.
