CLERMONT, Ky. — Bourbon barrel No. 15 million has taken its place in a Jim Beam warehouse in Kentucky.
Beam on Monday filled its 15 millionth barrel of bourbon since the end of Prohibition. The company says it’s a first for a Kentucky distillery. It was filled and sealed by seventh-generation Master Distiller Fred Noe and his son, Freddie, at Beam’s flagship distillery in Clermont.
