10 Statements All Whiskey Drinkers Know To Be True


There are certain statements all whiskey drinkers know to be true, no matter where they come from. And to celebrate the launch of Jim Beam® Single Barrel (the first-ever single barrel product from the world’s #1 bourbon), whiskey fans all over the country have the opportunity to take part in the craft-making process of this hand-crafted and hand-selected bourbon.

The brand is launching the Jim Beam® “Single Barrel, Single Statement” Contest and asking fans to share their “statements” – whether it’s a favorite toast, how to sip a great glass of bourbon, whom to enjoy it with or where to drink it – at JimBeamSingleStatement.com for a chance to be featured on the inside back label of actual bottles of Jim Beam® Single Barrel. They could join some of the great quote-makers of history and the craftspeople who have been making history with Jim Beam for generations.
