Jim Beam, Clermont
Yes, Jim Beam has filled 14 million barrels. Yes, it’s the world’s No. 1-selling bourbon. And yes, it’s everywhere. But you wouldn’t know it by stepping foot on the ornate grounds of Jim Beam, where the term “small batch” became iconic.
You’ll be entranced by the scent of vanilla and caramel in the air, a statue of a large fella in a rocking chair—that’s the late, legendary Master Distiller Booker Noe—and the scenery of its neighbor, Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest.
