Hardin’s Creek Kentucky Series Frankfort
Hardin’s Creek Kentucky Series Clermont is a 17-year old bourbon produced by James B. Beam Distilling Co. as part of the Hardin’s Creek brand family. Each was distilled at the company’s main campus in Clermont, KY, and this expression was aged at Beam’s Frankfort, KY campus.
The Hardin’s Creek Kentucky Series is made up of three bourbons that are meant to be an exploration of “Kentucky terroir,” highlighting how different landscapes have influenced the flavor characteristics of each whiskey.
Within The Kentucky Series, all three expressions are 17-year-old Bourbons that have been aged at one of three campuses of the James B. Beam Distilling Company: Clermont, Frankfort, and Boston. Although they share the same mashbill and age, the bourbons were aged at different locations within the campuses.
The creek bed at the Frankfort campus covers the storied rack houses in a blanket of humidity, making everything age more slowly. Liquid ages at its own pace with little ventilation and a lot of time.
