Jim Beam's American Outpost

Search Clermont Kentucky

The famous bourbon-maker's Tourist Center is housed in a replica of an old tobacco barn, where tours provide insight into the centuries-old art of distillery; an authentic and one-of-a-kind moonshine still, believed to be the oldest in America, can be found behind the Outpost. Utilizing the limestone water of the area, which lends the product its characteristic smoothness, the Beam family has continuously produced bourbon in the area for over 200 years.

The historic circa 1911 Beam family home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, restored to its original end-of-Prohibition state, can also can be visited. A Family History Room displays rare family photos and heirloom memorabilia; the restored tasting parlor is included in the tour. Visitors to the gift shop can sample their world-famous bourbon candy.

Located on the grounds of the Jim Beam Distillery, just 30 minutes south of Louisville. Admission is free to the public; open daily except major holidays.
