Where in the world is Jim Beam? It's in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, according to a new campaign by the Kentucky Department of Tourism. I'm splitting hairs, I know. Shepherdsville is the closest town of any size to the distillery. It's only about 7 miles away. And they're both in Bullit County. But the reality is that the distillery is linked to Bardstown, which is admittedly 25 miles away in the other direction. Anyway, I just thought it was funny, as I've never seen Beam associated with Shepherdsville before.

Describing the Beam distillery as a "world-class cultural destination" is a bit of a grin too.
