Jim Beam’s First-Ever Luxury Bourbon Is A Multi-Generational Family Collaboration

Oct 20, 2020

Category: Vices

With a history spanning over 200 years and eight generations, Jim Beam is a distillery well-steeped in tradition. From its founder Jacob Beam to current serving master distiller Fred Noe, the family has been always been helmed by daring individuals looking to take the brand to new heights. With the launch of the Lineage bourbon, Jim Beam enters the luxury whiskey market for the first time ever.

Batched by father and son duo Fred And Freddie Noe, Lineage is the first collaborative project to come from the seventh- and eighth-generation of family distillers. What’s more, it marks the first Jim Beam bourbon to bear Freddie Noe’s name. Aged in charred white oak barrels since 2004, the whiskey features notes of spice, vanilla, and caramel. And with a warm, smooth finish, it makes for a perfectly balanced blend. Bottled at 110-proof (55% ABV), it’s of a strength best enjoyed neat or on-the-rocks. In order to commemorate such a special release, Jim Beam is packaging each Lineage bottle in a handsome wooden box with a serial number plaque. Available exclusively in global travel retailers, you’ll be able to pick it up for $250 starting early 2021.
