Parker Beam: Seventh Generation Master Distiller
The craft of making Bourbon is in his blood. For over a quarter-century, Parker Beam has been practicing his family’s craft at Heaven Hill Distilleries of distilling, aging and selecting some of the world’s most critically-acclaimed Bourbons.
Park Beam, Parker’s grandfather and namesake, was the brother of James Beauregard Beam, better known as “Jim” Beam. It was Parker’s father, Earl, who was the first to ply his trade at Heaven Hill. Earl, in turn, then turned the reins over to Parker in 1975. In doing so, Parker became the seventh generation Beam to earn the title Master Distiller.
Bringing his family’s many years of experience with him, Parker will be presenting a tasting seminar at both WhiskyFest San Francisco and New York. It’s an opportunity you won’t want to pass up.
