Ever Wanted To Stay At The Jim Beam Distillery? For A Brief Time, You Can - The Whiskey Wash

Ever Wanted To Stay At The Jim Beam Distillery? For A Brief Time, You Can

By Nino Marchetti / October 16, 2019

Visits to whisk(e)y country, be it Kentucky or Scotland or wherever, are done by many people as trips spanning over several days. Lodging is thus required in order to rest your weary head after a long day of distillery touring and booze drinking. Some distilleries, especially in Scotland, look to cater to this to some extent with stay on site options that can add to the fun of the whole thing.

Now, for a brief time, the Jim Beam distillery is getting in on the game too with the option to stay in a rustic home on the bourbon maker’s grounds.

The limited time rental property on the Jim Beam distillery campus in Clermont, Kentucky, according to those behind it, will be available through Airbnb beginning the week of October 21 on “a limited number of dates” and running through the end of 2019. The home where people will stay overnight was built in 1919 and has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. It comes, of course, with a fully-stocked bar featuring premium Jim Beam bourbons, fireplace, backyard with cowboy cauldrons and fishing docks. Guests will be able to enjoy a number of activities while there, including a distillery tour and bourbon tasting as well as “classic Kentucky barbecue meals.”

“There’s no better time to experience bourbon country than during the cool, crisp months of fall, so we’re welcoming bourbon fans to join the Beam family during an overnight stay at our home in the rolling hills of Kentucky,” said Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s 7th Generation Master Distiller and Airbnb property host, in a prepared statement. “We like to say that anyone who visits us comes as friends and leaves as family, so we’re thrilled to welcome our extended family for some bourbon and Kentucky hospitality.”

All lodging is presented as a one night stay, pricing at a ridiculously cheap $23 (the same price as a bottle of Jim Beam Black bourbon). The caveats? Reservations are first come, first serve and very limited; you must be 21 years of age or older and you are responsible for booking your own travel accommodations to get to the distillery.
