Master Distiller Fred Noe and his son unveiling a statue of Kentucky and distilling legend James B. Beam.

Thursday, September 18th, 2014.

Jim Beam® Bourbon unveiled a statue of Kentucky and distilling legend James B. Beam (1864–1947) in a ceremony commemorating the 150th birthday of the iconic bourbon’s namesake, Colonel James Beauregard Beam. Beam, the fourth-generation family distiller, is credited with establishing Jim Beam® as a national brand after Prohibition, renovating and rebuilding his distillery in a mere 120 days after Prohibition was repealed in 1933, razing most of the old buildings and constructing new ones by hand. To this day, Jim Beam’s namesake bourbon is still produced on the same site, which is now called the Jim Beam American Stillhouse.

Master Distiller Fred Noe dressing the crowd.

“This statue would make my great-granddad proud,” said Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s great-grandson and 7th-generation master distiller.“ Using the Beam family ‘mash bill’ and centuries of family knowledge passed on to him from his father, David M., he built the family business into the leading bourbon producer in the world. Today, we celebrated his birthday, the legacy he left and toast that which is yet to come.” Community leaders joined in the milestone celebration and helped Jim Beam Make History® by declaring September 18, 2014 “Jim Beam Day.” The proclamation recognizes Jim Beam’s contributions to the commonwealth through his perseverance, ingenuity and dedication to his family and friends. Bourbon enthusiasts named “Jim Beam” from across the country joined the celebration as special guests.

Beam’s statue was created by Benjamin Bartlett of Lexington. His bronze work features Beam wearing his signature 1920s suit coat, necktie and suspenders. Beam has a joyous look on his face as he beckons with pride toward the Jim Beam American Stillhouse all while raising a glass of bourbon. Bartlett was previously commissioned to create the now-famous bronze statue of Beam’s grandson and 6th-generation Beam family distiller Booker Noe which sits atop Beam Hill in Clermont, Kentucky.

Jim Beam Bourbon’s seventh generation Master Distiller Fred Noe and his son, Freddie Noe, unveil a life-size bronze statue of legendary bourbon distiller James B. Beam at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky.
