Old Tub Bourbon

Before Jim Beam Bourbon, the Beam Family made Old Tub, an unfiltered bonded bourbon that would become the foundation for the world’s #1 whiskey. This limited-edition offering is a tribute to that groundbreaking bourbon. Just like the original Old Tub liquid, this Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has not been carbon or chill filtered – only quality screened to remove bits of barrel wood. It showcases the true, rustic character of a bourbon made the way it was intended to be. A historic landmark in the world of bourbon, this whiskey started it all in the early 1800s. After Prohibition, we changed the way we made our bourbon and introduced the Jim Beam we all know today.
