Treat your taste buds to a special extra-aged bourbon from Jim Beam this week to celebrate Bourbon Day
Bourbon Day comes around once a year (Thursday 14th June in case you’re wondering), so it’s worth pushing the boat out with something a bit spesh.
Jim Beam has taken its original incredible bourbon and extra-aged it in white oak barrels to create instense, full-bodied flavour. Jim Beam Black is a bourbon with smooth caramel and warm oak notes, plus aromas of cinnamon and vanilla.
It’s not just us that’s fallen for this dark, warming spirit. Jim Beam Black won the Bourbon Trophy at the 2016 International Wine and Spirits Competition, making it officially the world’s number one bourbon.
This rich and flavourful spirit can be enjoyed neat, over ice or in cocktails like a classic Manhattan. Paint it black on Bourbon Day this year with our Jim Beam Black Bourbon Manhattan cocktail (recipe below), made with sweet vermouth, a dash of bitters and a few cherries. Because if you’re anything like us, Bourbon “Day” will turn into a whole week anyway!
