Not everyone with the surname Beam makes whiskey, but when you're a descendent of not only that distilling family but also the Dants, eventually you're going to get pulled into the business. In 2010, Steve Beam gave in to inevitability and founded Limestone Branch. His brother Paul soon joined the company and, with backing from the family, they started a new chapter of Beam history.
While the brother's own whiskey matures, they have been selecting casks produced by other distillers. The result is Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Minor Case Rye, both multi-award winning whiskies that show that these Beams know what they're doing when it comes to whiskey.
