Whisky Advocate: With Clermont Steep, Beam Takes On American Single MaltMay 17, 2023
American single malt has always been the province of craft distillers, but as the style has begun raising its profile in recent years, American whiskey’s biggest names have entered the fray. Just months after Jack Daniel’s introduced its Twice Barreled single malt, James B. Beam Distilling Co. is now releasing Clermont Steep, an American single malt from master distiller Freddie Noe.
The first run of Clermont Steep is limited, but the whiskey is a permanent addition to the Beam lineup, available in 14 markets across the U.S. and on ReserveBar starting next month. Moving forward, Clermont Steep will be made alongside Little Book and Hardin’s Creek at the Fred B. Noe Distillery, a smaller experimental operation on the James B. Beam Distilling campus in Clermont that opened its doors in 2021. Whisky Advocate has more.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
