5. Beam Helped Win WWII
Distillers like Jim Beam directly contributed to the manufacturing war effort. Alcohol was an essential aspect in the production of many wartime necessities, and a huge swath of goods were made possible by alcohol produced by the Old Tub distillery. One gallon could be used to produce 64 hand grenades or two 155mm Howitzer shells, and 23 gallons made for one especially tasty Jeep.
6. You Can Buy Beam® in 200 “Countries”
Yes, we know there are only 196 countries in the world, but Jim Beam not only sells to most of them, it’s also available in places that aren’t even countries (though they are protectorates, territories, sovereign states and Taipei). Germany, helpfully liberated in WWII, along with Australia and the US, are the biggest buyers of Beam® Bourbon.
