Additional Information

Slightly sharp and green on the nose, with a touch of menthol. On the palate, a very sweet start with soft brown sugars and caramel. As the middle is reached there is a hint of spice and maltiness. A gentle finale to a light, easy-going whiskey. Limited vanilla and a little oak sap add extra weight but the small grains, especially the malt, do hang on to the finish.

 

A little bit about Evan Williams-

Evan Williams, born a Welshman, settled in Virginia and moved to what would become Kentucky (but was then Fincastle County of Virginia) in about 1780. Like most frontiersmen, he grew crops, but getting them to market over narrow trails and steep mountains was a daunting task. Williams soon learned that converting his corn and other grains to whiskey made them easily transportable, prevented the excess grain from simply rotting, and gave them a little welcome diversion from the rough life of the frontier. Williams set up his small distillery on the Ohio River at the foot of what is now Fifth Street in Louisville. According to an article in the Louisville Courier-Journal of 29 April 1889, \"Williams was a member of the early Board of Trustees of Louisville, and tradition says he never attended a meeting of the board without bringing a bottle of his whiskey, and that what he brought was always drank by the members before the meeting adjourned.\" He was censured every time for doing so, but still he never left with a full jug!

Williams was later appointed Harbor Master of the port of Louisville, and supervised construction of the Jefferson County Jail in 1802-03. He died in October of 1810, and is widely considered \"Kentucky's First Distiller.\"

For over half a century, Parker Beam has been practicing his family's craft at Heaven Hill Distilleries of distilling, aging and selecting some of the world's most critically-acclaimed Bourbons.

Nowadays, Parker is joined by his son Craig, who works alongside his father in much the same way as Parker did years before with his father, Earl. Together, the two are responsible for making sure that the Heaven Hill Bourbons that are produced at the historic Bernheim Distillery possess the same high quality and consistent taste consumers have come to expect from such storied brands as Evan Williams and Elijah Craig.

In addition to overseeing all aspects related to production, the two are also charged with safeguarding the world's second-largest supply of aging Kentucky Bourbon whiskey, an inventory of more than 675,000 barrels currently aging in Heaven Hill's 40+ open rick warehouses throughout Nelson County.

Park Beam, Parker's grandfather and namesake, was the brother of James Beauregard Beam, better known as \"Jim\" Beam. It was Parker's father, Earl, who was the first to ply his trade at Heaven Hill. Earl, in turn, then turned the reins over to Parker in 1975. In doing so, Parker became the seventh generation Beam to earn the title Master Distiller.

Parker's son Craig joined Heaven Hill in 1982, and with Craig firmly entrenched in the business as the eighth generation of Master Distillers, the family's continued legacy of Bourbon-making is assured.
