Jim Beam American Stillhouse is Now on Airbnb

Jim Beam

If you’ve ever used Airbnb and been tempted to sneak a drink or two from the home bar of the house you are staying in, but you were dissuaded by the thought of getting a bad review … well, you made a good call. But Jim Beam is now offering an Airbnb experience where you can drink to your heart’s content (within moderation, of course) without fear of social media or other retribution.

Starting the week of October 21, bourbon fans can book a stay at a house on the grounds of the Jim Beam American Stillhouse on Airbnb for the low, low price of just $23 — the price of a bottle of Jim Beam Black. The stay will include other whiskey-focused activities, like a distillery tour, bourbon tasting, and some Kentucky barbecue meals at Fred’s Smokehouse.

Jim Beam

The three-bedroom house was built in 1919 on the grounds of the distillery overlooking Everbach Lake. The house comes with a fully stocked bar, naturally containing a healthy supply of Jim Beam and its affiliated brands, a fireplace, and a backyard with a fishing dock. You can reserve your one-night stay by visiting master distiller Fred Noe’s Airbnb profile, and slots are limited so act fast if you are interested. This offer will only last through the end of the year. Travel is not included, and guests must be at least 21 years old to reserve. Also, Fred Noe will not be staying in the house with you, but who knows, perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to catch him walking around the distillery and be able to say hello.

If you do manage to snag a night, don’t forget to spend some time checking out the rest of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail (including some of the newer-school distilleries) while you’re at it.

Blade and Bow Re-Releases Rare 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Blade and Bow whiskey

Some whiskeys are made to sit on your bar cart and be consumed whenever you damn well feel like while others should be kept under lock and key, pulled out only for special occasions, and one of those is the extremely rare Blade and Bow 22-Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which has been re-released this spring.

Bruh, I don’t think you heard us. Twenty-two years old! Might we remind you that the minimum requirement for a straight bourbon is only two years.

Don’t Be Surprised to See Cocktail Bars at Kentucky Distilleries
The Bar at Fort Nelson Michter’s Distillery Rye Manhattan

For a long time — up until 2016, in fact, when Kentucky Senate Bill 11 passed — when you visited a distillery in Kentucky (such as the many points along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail), you were treated, mostly, to a tour and a tasting. There were sometimes special tours, of course, and special events, but you weren’t allowed to have a cocktail mixed up or take a seat and soak up the beauty of a bar. That changed, though, with the passage of the bill, which allowed (among other things) distilleries to serve their products by the drink.

Since that time, a number of distilleries — both new and established — have opened cocktail bars in various iterations. Some, like Michter’s, Old Forester, and Copper & Kings, maintain regular bar hours while others are only open at specific times or for special events. Either way, it’s easy to see that cocktails are here to stay in distilleries in Kentucky.

Beam-Suntory’s Legent Is a First-of-Its-Kind Bourbon That Marries the U.S. and Japan
Beam-Suntory Legent Whiskey

The newest whiskey from Beam-Suntory, Legent, is here and you’re going to want to get your hands on some. A collaboration between two legends in the whisk(e)y world, this new juice is as much a work of art as it is a potent potable.

Starting with Kentucky straight bourbon distilled by Beam’s seventh-generation Master Distiller Fred Noe, Legent is then aged in wine and sherry casks. From there, Noe tags in Shinji Fukuyo, the fifth-ever chief blender of Suntory to blend that spirit with more Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The final product is bottled at 47 percent alcohol by volume, making for a warming yet not overly hot dram.
