Liquor Review Notes:
Jim Beam--today the largest bourbon producer in the world--was founded by Jacob Beam in the 1790s. He's credited for selling his first barrel of whiskey in 1795 "and the legend was born." It was briefly sold off in 1920 during prohibition but was rebuilt in a mere 120 days following its repeal in 1933. The Beam family has been in continuous position as master distillers for the entire history of the facility; additionally, this prolific family has served as master distillers for most of the bourbon producing distilleries in Kentucky at one time or another--the website contains a "distillers tree" that chronicles the myriad relationships among the bourbon producers of Kentucky. In 2005, they produced their 10 millionth barrel of bourbon. Today, the distillery is one of the landmarks of Kentucky and produces several different hand-crafted bourbons as well as its own flagship labels.
Jacob's Ghost White Whiskey is the "moonshine" expression from the historic distillery. The "moonshine" label is a bit misleading since the whiskey is aged for 1 year prior to bottling and thus ins't a "pure" moonshine. The name comes from Jacob Beam, who is the progenitor of Beam whiskey. The grain is the same recipe as the flagship white label bourbon but it is aged for a single year in charred oak and then filtered to remove the color--a similar process that is often used for premium silver rums.
