The ancestors of brothers Steve and Paul Beam were distillers for five generations before Prohibition interrupted.
“I always felt like it was an unfinished chapter for my family,” says Steve, of the 200 years of family story that preceded him.
So he and brother Paul reopened the book, and started making history again…with Limestone Branch Distillery.
Using recipes – some of them plucked from their grandfather Guy’s notebook – and family knowledge gleaned from the previous generations of master distillers that came before them, Steve and Paul now distill their own first-class products.
And always, clues about who they are and where they came from are buried in the names and tastes of their products. And they are where they are – near Lebanon, KY – for a reason.
