Jim Beam Bourbon White Label 80 proof
Aged four years and bottled at 80 proof. True to its original recipe for more than 200 years. This is the only American whiskey made the same way, by the same family since 1795
Reached a historic milestone with the filling of the 12 millionth barrel of Jim Beam in October 2011. This marked the second time Jim Beam has filled one million barrels in less than three years (first time was 2008), offering further evidence of the sustained growth in international and domestic demand for “America’s Native Spirit.”
Today, the hand-written recipe for Jim Beam is stored in a vault in a secret location and on average, the Jim Beam Distilleries in Clermont and Boston, Ky. fill approximately 1,800 barrels a day.

Jim Beam Devils Cut 90 proof
A premium bourbon whiskey created using a proprietary process that extracts the liquid trapped inside the wood of the bourbon barrels.
The name Devil’s Cut plays off the notion of “Angel’s Share” in bourbon-making. As Bourbon ages, a portion of liquid is lost from the barrel due to evaporation—that’s the Angel’s Share. After ageing, when the bourbon is dumped out of the barrel, a certain amount of whiskey is left trapped within the wood of every barrel—it’s that liquid, and the rich flavors from deep within the barrel wood it contains, that are unleashed and put back into extra-aged, six-year Jim Beam® Bourbon to create the finely-balanced, smooth 90 proof Devil’s Cut® Bourbon.
The aroma showcases the deep notes of vanilla and wood pulled from the extracted liquid of the barrel. By extracting the liquid trapped within the barrel wood, bold bourbon notes of wood, oak and vanilla are unleashed and give Devil’s Cut® an intense but smooth flavour that separates itself from other bourbons.
A “White Whiskey” not a moonshine or Un-aged White dog, aged for at least a year in white oak barrels it can be enjoyed as a bourbon or as a mixer.
Jim Beam Red Stag Infused Bourbon
Red Stag by Jim Beam® Bourbon Whiskey brings flavour to the Bourbon category. Created through a unique, artisan process where flavours are infused into their four-year-old Bourbon, Red Stag is true to a rich Bourbon heritage—only with a twist.
Successfully launched in June ’09, and was both the #2 Spirits innovation in 2010 and the #1 Bourbon introduction in the previous 10 years. Since storming out of the gate, Red Stag Bourbon has helped spark a surge for new, innovative whiskies infused with flavour.
In 2012, Jim Beam® expanded its infused bourbon portfolio with two new Red Stag expressions– Red Stag Honey Tea and Red Stag Spiced. Like their predecessor, use signature Jim Beam four-year-old bourbon as a base, but instead of black cherry, the new expressions are honey tea and cinnamon flavoured.
All three Red Stag Bourbon offerings provide a mixable, approachable spin on America’s native spirit.
Jim Beam Choice (green label) – Aged 5 years, 80 proof, charcoal filtered
Rounded and mature. Charcoal filtering prior to bottling adds complexity and depth. An extra year of aging allows the bourbon to take on a sweeter, creamier taste.
Colour: Deep, rich honey gold.
Nose: Strong oak and a sweet, nutty scent.
Taste: Rich, creamy and unmistakably sugary.
Jim Beam Seven Year (white label, red cap) – 7 years, 80 proof
Nose: Delicate, with a hint of vanilla.
Taste:Balanced caramel and vanilla. Easy to sip straight.
Finish: Light, but surprisingly intense.
Jim Beam Rye 80 proof 40%ABV
A Rye whiskey, frequently referred to as Beam Yellow Label. It is America's top selling straight Rye whiskey. It is bottled at 80 proof (40% ABV) and aged for 4 years in newly charred white oak barrel.
