Jim Beam®

Jim Beam® is the world's best-selling bourbon, crafted by seven generations of family distillers since 1795. Elegant. Smooth. Refined. That's what years of aging in new charred oak barrels does to our Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Fred Noe, Jim Beam's 7th Generation Master Distiller, has stayed true to the family recipe that's been passed down through generations.

Maker’s Mark®

In 1953, Kentucky distiller Bill Samuels, Sr. set out to create a bourbon whisky to suit any palate. After burning the 170-year old family recipe, he created a full flavored yet easy-to-drink recipe using red winter wheat. Now a global icon, each and every bottle of Maker’s is still hand-dipped in the brand’s signature red wax.
