Beam’s New Trio of Hardin’s Creek Bourbons Are Exactly Alike Except for One Major Differentiating Factor
On Thursday, the James B. Beam Distilling Co. announced the Hardin’s Creek Kentucky Series, a lineup of three 17-year-old bourbon releases. Each release in the series was distilled from the same mashbill and laid down for maturation on the same date. The differentiating factor between the trio is location; each was aged at a different James B. Beam Distilling Company campus: Clermont, Frankfort or Boston.
Expressions of the Kentucky Series launch in limited quantities throughout 2023. Clermont came first, launching Thursday. It will be followed by Frankfort on Aug. 1 and Boston on Sept. 1.
Hardin’s Creek Clermont is bottled at 110 proof and sells for a suggested retail price of $169.99. To read our review of Hardin’s Creek Clermont, click here.
