An ever-evolving series of releases that features some of our rarest and most unique whiskies, Hardin’s Creek will chart the rich experience and distilling knowledge of the James B. Beam Distilling Co. Hardin’s Creek is the birthplace of the Beam Family’s distilling legacy. The small creek flows into a river in the foothills of Central Kentucky, where Jacob Beam’s legacy was born in 1795. Over 227 years, eight generations of master distillers have built a deep well of whiskey expertise.
Discover the ultra-limited second release of Hardin’s Creek, Colonel James B. Beam. Taken off the still at a low distillation proof then intentionally aged at just 2 years for a fullness of flavor and complexity usually reserved for more mature bourbons.The result after just 2 years in the barrel is an incredibly robust flavor and proof that quality isn't solely defined by time. Inspired by its namesake’s post-Prohibition bourbon, Colonel James B. Beam boasts notes of vanilla, earthiness of nuts and oak and a distinctive caramel body. It takes whiskey beyond what it’s expected to be and towards what it could be.
