Jim Beam Brands Co. Key Developments

Striking Jim Beam Workers Accept New Contract

Jim Beam announced that striking the company's workers at two Kentucky distilleries have accepted a contract offer, ending a walkout that lasted nearly a week. United Food and Commercial Workers union official Tommy Ballard says workers approved the proposal on a 204-19 vote on October 21, 2016 and will return to work on October 24, 2016. The strike began last October 15, 2016, when Beam workers at two distilleries turned down a prior offer. The workers' main complaint with the world's leading bourbon producer was not money but time. The union wanted more full-time workers hired, rather than a greater reliance on temporary workers. Ballard says the company's newest offer includes a commitment to hire more full-time staff.

Striking Jim Beam Workers Set to Vote on New Offer

Striking Jim Beam workers are set to vote on a new contract offer aimed at ending a nearly weeklong strike at two Kentucky distilleries. About 250 workers walked off jobs last Saturday at Beam distilleries in Clermont and Boston after voting down a contract offer. Their main complaint is not money but time - the union wants more full-time workers hired, rather than temporary employees.

Jim Beam Unveils Newest Premium Bourbon Jim Beam® Double Oak

Jim Beam announced the release of Jim Beam® Double Oak, an exceptional and perfectly balanced Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished in oak that is twice barreled to create richer and woodier flavors than other whiskies. Aged four years while sitting in freshly charred, new American oak barrels, Jim Beam Double Oak is then transferred to newly charred American oak barrels and aged to taste. The second barreling allows the liquid to develop an even deeper level of intense spiced oakiness and rich caramel, creating a unique bourbon encounter. Jim Beam Double Oak will begin hitting shelves this month. This latest innovation from Jim Beam has a golden amber color and a distinctive spiced oakiness with intense caramel and toffee flavors. The aroma carries rich notes of caramel and vanilla with hints of toasted wood. It is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or mixed in classic American cocktails and has a suggested retail price of $22.00 for 750ML.
