Beam Global Spirits & Wine is to launch limited edition bottles of Jim Beam Bourbon in the US to help support firefighters and their families.

The bottles, with labels depicting a firefighter, are being launched to raise awareness for the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund, the company said today (23 June).

Fire chief Terry Farrell perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001.

His family set up the fund, which donates firefighting equipment to underfunded fire stations and provides scholarships and medical services to the families of active, retired and fallen firefighters across the US.

Over 9,000 cases of the speciality Jim Beam bottles will be available at select stores in California.

Beam Global is the drinks arm of Fortune Brands
