Distillery Visit: Jim Beam Distillery, Clermont, Kentucky (Part 1)

What can be said, other than “WOW!” joined a group of dipsomaniacal reporters on a press trip to the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Part of the fun, ahem, work involved visiting the Jim Beam distillery.

Below is a video of Jim Beam whiskey being produced. Notice that it is water clear. This particular “white dog,” as this unaged whiskey is called, came off the still at over 130 proof. We took a few sips and detected corn and rye notes, and felt a dryness and a slight throat itch as it went down the pipe. It tasted mighty good. (Turn on your speakers before playing this video.)
