Released to select U.S. markets this month with a <b>suggested retail price of $100 (750ml)</b>, only a limited quantity has been produced due to its age and unique finish.</a></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">Aged for 15 years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and then finished in Madeira wine casks from Portugal’s Madeira Island, The Tyrconnell 15 Year Old Madeira Cask Finish is a one-of-a-kind Irish whiskey with an unsurpassed richness and complexity. It is the oldest Madeira cask finished Tyrconnell released. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">By 2007, The Tyrconnell distilling team was experimenting with different finishing techniques after discovering how amenable their light, soft and fruity whiskey was to a cask finish. One of the first modern Irish whiskeys aged in Madeira casks, The Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Madeira Cask Finish, was released in 2007 alongside The Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Port Cask Finish and The Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish, all permanent expressions in the brand’s portfolio. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">“We knew we had discovered something special when we first began experimenting with finishing The Tyrconnell in Madeira casks,” says John Cashman, Global Brand Ambassador. “Because we are in the fortunate position of being one of the oldest Irish whiskey-producing companies, we have the patience to wait 15 long years to present something truly remarkable. The 15 year old Tyrconnell finished in Madeira casks is a beautifully rich and spicy spirit, one that I like to enjoy neat or over a few cubes.”</span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">The Tyrconnell is made of just two ingredients – the finest Irish barley and pure Irish spring water. These two simple materials are transformed by experienced hands into an Irish whiskey like no other. Produced in traditional pot stills, The Tyrconnell is one of a rare few Irish whiskeys that utilizes double distillation, allowing more of the rich and natural flavors of The Tyrconnell to remain. This creates a whiskey that carries a delicate flavor atop a creamier, more viscous presence. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">Aging the whiskey for 15 years before incorporating the Madeira cask finishing method into this unique limited edition has resulted in an even more complex expression with an incredible evergreen forest freshness. The best way to enjoy this sipping whiskey is on the rocks or neat to showcase the rich, sweet aromas on the nose, its fresh flavor and spicy finish. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">The legend of The Tyrconnell® was born in 1876, when R. M. Delamere entered his beautiful chestnut colt, Tyrconnell, in the 10<sup>th</sup> running of the prestigious National Produce Stakes Horse Race at The Curragh, considered Ireland’s most important thoroughbred racecourse. A short thoroughbred with the odds stacked against him, fortune found favor that afternoon as Tyrconnell crossed the finish line in first place, besting horses and oddsmakers alike on his march to victory. &nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%">The against-all-odds victory captured the imagination of the assembled crowd, which included the Watts, an Irish race horse loving family who had built a thriving whiskey distillery. They chose to commemorate Tyrconnell’s win by creating a limited edition, small batch whiskey that bore the name of their local champion. Although the Watts family intended to make The Tyrconnell just once, it ended up becoming their most popular whiskey, even claimed to have been the best-selling Irish whiskey in America before Prohibition. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%"><b><u>TASTING NOTES: THE TYRCONNELL 15 YEAR OLD MADEIRA CASK FINISH </u></b></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%"><b>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PROOF&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </b>46% ABV</span></p> <p style="margin-top:0cm; margin-right:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; margin-left:72.0pt; text-align:justify"><span style="line-height:115%"><b>AROMA&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </b>Wafer biscuit sweet vanilla aromas mingle with banana bread and deep red fruit skin.

The Cooley Distillery, part of the Kilbeggan Distilling Company, has been the driving force behind the Irish Single Malt evolution. Most Irish malt whiskey has traditionally found its way into blended whiskeys, thus it is rare to find Irish malt whiskey bottled in its single malt form. The award-winning Tyrconnell portfolio includes The Tyrconnell, The Tyrconnell 16 Year Old Limited Edition and a trio of 10 Year Old cask finished expressions: Madeira Cask, Sherry Cask and Port Cask.

The all-American pair will introduce a new taste of history to beer and bourbon fans alike through a cross-merchandising program starting in the spring and a new collaborative brew launching in the fall.<br /> Starting this month, the two brands will begin appearing together at bars and retail venues across the country, just in time for baseball season. Inspired by the “beer and a bourbon shot” occasion, the new on-premise cross-merchandising program will feature Budweiser and Jim Beam bourbon together for the perfect pairing.</p> <p><br /> Following, in September, Budweiser’s brewmasters and Jim Beam’s seventh generation Master Distiller Fred Noe will celebrate the upcoming 85th anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition with the unveiling of a new limited-edition collaborative brew – Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager. The Copper Lager is brewed with two-row barley and aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves to create a toasted oak aroma and deliciously nutty taste with caramel rye and vanilla notes.</p> <p><br /> “We are very excited about this partnership not only because both brands share common history but also an obsession for quality and a decade’s long connection to America,” said Ricardo Marques, Vice President of marketing for Budweiser. “This is a truly unique partnership and innovation that will surely drive excitement with our drinkers.”</p> <p><br /> “This partnership feels especially natural given our brands’ common values and the pivotal roles they’ve both played in American history,” said Rob Mason, Vice President of marketing for Jim Beam. “Our family distillers have produced ‘America’s Native Spirit’ since 1795, using traditions and techniques passed down through the generations. This is another exciting milestone in Jim Beam’s history.”</p> <p><br /> The World’s most valuable beer brand and the World’s No. 1 bourbon brand share impressive histories of persevering through the Prohibition era while they were not able to produce their signature products. For Jim Beam, it was their fourth generation distiller – James B. Beam – who rebuilt his family’s distillery in a mere 120 days to produce what is today the world’s best-selling bourbon. Similarly, Budweiser kept its doors open through Prohibition by creating other non-alcoholic packaged goods as they waited to bring beer back to America. Budweiser’s Reserve Copper Lager aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves celebrates this important moment for these brands and all Americans.</p> <p><br /> The partnership between Budweiser and Jim Beam promises to deliver unique product innovations, integrated marketing efforts and a unique way to delight both beer and bourbon fans. The two brands will lean on their incredible American heritage to deliver a modern drinking experience this year and beyond.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Details of Brand</div> <div><p><strong>About Budweiser</strong><br /> Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.</p> <p><strong>About Jim Beam</strong><br /> 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. The Jim Beam portfolio of products includes Jim Beam Bourbon, Jim Beam Black, Jim Beam Double Oak, Jim Beam Devil’s Cut, Jim Beam Bonded, Jim Beam Rye, Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece, Jim Beam Vanilla, Jim Beam Honey, Jim Beam Kentucky Fire and Red Stag by Jim Beam among other offerings.</p> <p>For more information, contact: &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Jennifer Goldsmith</strong><br /> media@anheuser-busch.com</p> <p><strong>Dan Cohen</strong>&nbsp;<br /> Dan.cohen@beamsuntory.com</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>News Category</div> <div><a href="/taxonomy/term/6" hreflang="en">Brand News</a></div> </div> <div> <div>News Thumbnail Image</div> <div> <img src="/sites/default/files/2018-04/Bud_Beam%20PROMO.jpg" width="125" height="125" alt="JimBeamBudweiser" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>Display News in Our Brands?</div> <div>No</div> </div> <div> <div>Meta Title</div> <div>Beam Suntory</div> </div> Tue, 03 Apr 2018 12:47:41 +0000 admin 718 at http://www.beamsuntory.com Two Kentucky Icons Link Up To Create The Jim Beam® Natural Water Sanctuary Alliance At Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest http://www.beamsuntory.com/news/press-releases/two-kentucky-icons-link-create-jim-beamr-natural-water-sanctuary-alliance <span>Two Kentucky Icons Link Up To Create The Jim Beam® Natural Water Sanctuary Alliance At Bernheim Arboretum &amp; Research Forest </span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Fri, 03/23/2018 - 18:09</span> <div> <div>News Detail Image</div> <div> <img src="/sites/default/files/2018-03/NWSA%202%20site_0.jpg" width="610" height="300" alt="Two Kentucky Icons Link Up " typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>Short Description</div> <div><p><i>Alliance aims to protect natural water, restore wildlife habitats and reintroduce native plants and trees</i></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Description</div> <div><p><b>Clermont, Kentucky – March 22, 2018 </b>– Two Kentucky icons are embarking on an alliance to preserve and protect the pristine limestone water in the Clermont area.</p> <p><a name="_Hlk509045336">Jim Beam, the world’s No. 1 selling bourbon whiskey, and Bernheim Arboretum &amp; Research Forest, a 15,625 acre privately held forest just south of Louisville, have joined forces to develop a natural water sanctuary<b> </b>on Bernheim grounds immediately adjacent to the Jim Beam distillery.</a></p> <p>Beginning as a one-year agreement, the Natural Water Sanctuary Alliance will protect water quality, restore wildlife habitats, and reintroduce native plants and trees. This group is also working toward a long-term agreement to enhance environmental education, improve watershed protection planning, and secure quality water.</p> <p>“Great bourbon starts with great water,” said Freddie Noe, eighth generation Beam Distiller. “In fact, the water in Clermont is one of the main reasons my family chose to settle here back in 1795. Jim Beam bourbon gets its distinct and wonderful taste, in part, from the local water, which is filtered naturally through limestone. We’re proud to team up with our neighbors at Bernheim to preserve this vital natural resource.”</p> <p>The Jim Beam Natural Water Sanctuary Alliance at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest will concentrate on conservation activities across Bernheim, particularly within the Long-Lick and Wilson Creek watersheds. These areas feature large forest expanses, wetlands and the head waters of three creeks and several small lakes that support wildlife, the surrounding communities, and the production of Jim Beam Bourbon.</p> <p>Through this alliance, Jim Beam will also support Bernheim’s work to protect the federally endangered Indiana Bat, and co-host an annual landowners’ workshop to educate the community and promote best practices in water conservation and forest stewardship.</p> <p>“The importance of clean water cannot be overstated. It’s essential for wildlife. It’s essential for human life and it’s essential to our economy,” said Mark Wourms, Bernheim’s Executive Director. “We are grateful to have a corporate partner like Jim Beam that values protecting this vital natural resource.”</p> <p>The Natural Water Sanctuary Alliance is the latest example of Beam Suntory’s dedication to protecting water and the environment, inspired by corporate parent Suntory Holdings, which has established 20 Natural Water Sanctuaries throughout Japan. These more than 20,000 acres of forest protect quality water to supply its facilities, and nurture surrounding communities for many years to come.</p> <p>“Both the Beam and Bernheim families have deep Kentucky roots and centuries of heritage in the Clermont area,” added Noe. “We have long shared a common respect and love for the land here and we understand the critical role protecting our environment, especially our natural water, plays in our future – not only the future of our business but the future health and well-being of our families, friends and colleagues who call this area home. We feel privileged to be able to give back to the community that has given us so much.”</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Details of Brand</div> <div><p><b><u>About Beam Suntory</u></b></p> <p>As the world’s third largest premium spirits company, Beam Suntory is Crafting the Spirits Brands that Stir the World.

As part of the deal, Beam Suntory will become On the Rocks’ exclusive partner for co-branded beverages, including an Old Fashioned with Knob Creek® Bourbon, a Margarita with Hornitos® tequila, and a Cosmopolitan with EFFEN® vodka. On the Rocks will also leverage Beam Suntory’s considerable expertise in product development, commercialization, distribution, manufacturing, and packaging as it continues to grow.</p> <p>“As the cocktail culture continues to thrive, we know consumers are looking for quality, hand-crafted cocktails in places where they haven’t been available before,” said Greg Hughes, General Manager, North America at Beam Suntory. “Our partnership with On the Rocks will help them capture more of these occasions, such as air travel, hotel room service, and major sporting events.”</p> <p>On the Rocks was co-founded in 2015 by Patrick Halbert, an entrepreneur and restauranteur. Halbert and bartender Rocco Milano had created a cocktail program at the Dallas restaurant Private Social that was recognized as one of the city’s best by 2013. Friends in the airline industry asked Milano to try bottling his signature cocktails for in-flight service.</p> <p>“This created a new challenge: how do you make natural cocktails that can keep,” said Milano, now Co-Founder/Corporate Mixologist at On the Rocks. “We said, let’s make bartender cocktails that elevate ready-to-serve into a culinary experience in a glass.”</p> <p>The team developed branding, packaging, a method for preserving cocktails made with natural ingredients in a bottle without separating or spoiling, and assembled a portfolio of esteemed clients. On the Rocks filled its first order in 2016, for Hawaiian Airlines, and has since added Hilton Hotels, Four Seasons Hotels, Pebble Beach Golf Club, and the Beverly Hills Hotel to its client roster.</p> <p>“We couldn’t be happier to have gained a partner like Beam Suntory,” Halbert said. “Their partnership will help us grow our business much faster, and our collaboration will mean that our hand-crafted, quality cocktails will also include some of the world’s finest premium spirits.”</p> <p>In addition to the Old Fashioned, Cosmopolitan and Margarita, Rocco has also created a Jalapeno Pineapple Margarita with Tres Generaciones® tequila, an Aviation using Larios® gin, and a Mai Tai with Cruzan® rum.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Details of Brand</div> <div><p><strong>About Beam Suntory Inc.</strong></p> <p><br /> As the world’s third largest premium spirits company, Beam Suntory is Crafting the Spirits Brands that Stir the World.

The milestone barrel — a first for Kentucky distilleries — was personally filled and sealed by Seventh Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe and his son Freddie Noe, Eighth Generation Beam Distiller, at the brand’s flagship distillery in Clermont, Ky.</p> <p>“Fifteen million is a big number, but we’re a big bourbon,” said Fred Noe. “When Jim Beam, my great grandfather, filled his first barrel of whiskey at our Clermont distillery after Prohibition, I doubt he would have predicted that one day we would be a brand known and enjoyed the world over.”</p> <p>The historic milestone, achieved less than two years after the filling of Jim Beam’s 14 millionth barrel — the shortest period of time between milestone barrel fills — serves as a testament to the continued global bourbon boom. The growing momentum can be attributed to continued strong sales spurred by rising global demand and the excellent performance of the entire Jim Beam portfolio across the United States, Europe and Southeast Asia.</p> <p>“We’re reaching these milestones faster and faster,” said Craig Christenson, vice president global marketing, Jim Beam. “From Russia and Germany to Japan and China – not to mention the United States where Jim Beam is gaining substantial market share, bourbon has become the spirit of choice around the world and we’re happy to oblige them by making more. We’re the first to reach 15 million and we’re not slowing down.”</p> <p>The 15 millionth barrel, signed by employees at the company’s Clermont, Boston and Frankfort plants, will join the nearly 2.3 million barrels of bourbon currently aging in Jim Beam’s rackhouses across the Commonwealth. It will be stored inside the distillery’s historic rackhouse D, a nine-story warehouse rebuilt by Jim Beam after Prohibition on the Clermont distillery grounds. The rackhouse is open to visitors as part of the Jim Beam® American Stillhouse tour.</p> <p><u><strong>Consumer Demand Fuels Category Growth</strong></u></p> <p>According to the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, bourbon is now an $8.5 billion state industry, supporting more than 17,500 jobs and generating more than $1.8 million in tax revenues annually.</p> <p>At one time known for one primary product, the iconic Jim Beam portfolio now offers a wide range of award-winning expressions including Jim Beam Black®, Jim Beam® Distillers Cut, Jim Beam® Double Oak, Jim Beam® Devil’s Cut®, Jim Beam® Single Barrel, Jim Beam® Bonded, Jim Beam® Rye and Jim Beam® Distiller’s Masterpiece.</p> <p>Jim Beam has continued to expand its operations in Kentucky, fueled by a commitment to innovate and meet surging global consumer demand.</p> <p>For more information on Jim Beam, follow Jim Beam on Twitter (@jimbeam) and Instagram (@jimbeamofficial) or visit http://www.jimbeam.com.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Details of Brand</div> <div><p><strong>About Beam Suntory Inc.</strong></p> <p>As the world’s third largest premium spirits company, Beam Suntory is Crafting the Spirits Brands that Stir the World.
