Jim Beam is a bourbon whiskey produced in the United States. It is named after James B. Beam, who started distilling the bourbon in 1795. The whiskey is made from a mash of corn, rye, and barley, and is aged for four years in new oak barrels. Jim Beam is one of the best-selling bourbons in the world.
In 2014, Jim Beam was sold to Suntory, a Japanese company, for $13.6 billion. Even though the company has changed hands, Jim Beam remains a popular choice for bourbon lovers all over the world.
