Jim Beam Black Label Change

Recommended Posts

Hey! I was researching the history of Jim Beam Black Label and I found some old bottles with the name Beam's Black Label. Obviously, it's the same stuff, but I was wondering if anyone knows when Beam decided to change the name or why they did? Let me know!

I believe they changed it quite a while back if I'm not mistaken.

I can't remember the exact dates, but I think it goes back around 20 years ago.

Earliest I recall was 8 years old 90 proof, then changed to 8 years old 86 proof, then the current no exact age statement 86 proof.

Why Beam decided to make the changes - probably increased demand, and tighter supplies of well aged barrels.  Also trying to support other brands like Knob.
