Yesterday, The Dramble spoke to Steve Beam, Head Distiller of Limestone Branch – one of Kentucky’s newest distilleries. Today, we’ll take a look at one of the distillery’s current bottlings – Yellowstone Select. Yellowstone Bourbon was originally produced by J.B. Dant who founded the Yellowstone Distillery in the 1880’s. It was one of only a limited number of whiskey’s still produced for ‘medicinal purposes’ following the Volstead Act that came into force in 1920. Prohibition hit many distilleries hard – Yellowstone was no exception – Guy S Beam – 5th generation of the Beam family emigrated to Canada to continue distilling there. 150 years later, Guy’s descendants have refashioned and reinvented the Yellowstone brand for the 21st Century.
