Deerfield, Ill.-based Jim Beam has released two rare, ultra-premium expressions as part of its Signature Craft line – Jim Beam Signature Craft Quarter Cask and Jim Beam Harvest Bourbon Collection.
The Signature Craft line is a series of limited-released, small batch bourbons.
"With the newest batch expressions in our ultra-premium line of craft products, we are honoring traditions of the past while charting new waters for bourbon distilling," said Fred Noe, Jim Beam's seventh-generation master distiller.
Jim Beam Signature Craft Quarter Cask is the third edition from the Jim Beam Signature Craft line and second limited-edition expression. The full-bodied Kentucky Straight Bourbon is bottled at 86 proof, and starts with premium Jim Beam Bourbon aged at least five years. It’s finished with a variety of fine quarter cask bourbons, all aged at least four years in smaller barrels.
Jim Beam Signature Craft Quarter Cask joins Jim Beam Signature Craft 12-Year, the permanent expression in the line, which was released in September 2013. The new item is now available in select bars and retailers nationwide and has a suggested retail price of $39.99 for 750 millileters.
Jim Beam Harvest Bourbon Collection, meanwhile, is a series of six hand-crafted bourbons that celebrate the distinctive tastes imparted by the distillation of different grains. More than 11 years of aging have brought out the nuances of these ingredients to create some of the rarest whiskey expressions to ever leave a Jim Beam rackhouse, the company said.
The first two grain representations – Soft Red Wheat and Brown Rice – are being released in extremely small quantities beginning today. The four remaining expressions – Whole Rolled Oat, Triticale, High Rye and Six Row Barley – will be released with limited quantity throughout 2015.
