In the midst of the initial stretch of the summer, Father’s Day looms and challenges sons and daughters across the country to think outside the box in terms of gift-giving for their dear-old-dad. Rather than a DVD or golf balls, give them something that they’ll really enjoy – a cold glass of bourbon.
Jim Beam boasts a diverse bourbon portfolio, with two premium expressions that are great gifts, without forcing you to break the bank.
• Devil’s Cut®: Jim Beam’s latest offering is made by recapturing the rich bourbon and flavors previously trapped in the barrel wood and adding them back into extra-aged Jim Beam Bourbon (SRP $23.99 for a 750ML bottle).
• Jim Beam Black®: A more mature bourbon, aged 8 years and bottled at 86-proof features a smooth, yet refined taste and finish (SRP $21.99 for a 750ML bottle).
Not only is Jim Beam the perfect Father’s Day gift. You can also make Dad one of these signature cocktail recipes created by renowned mixolgist, Bobby Gleason.
