Beam Inc has lined up the launch of Jacob's Ghost, a white whiskey that will join the company's flagship Jim Beam US whiskey portfolio.

The expression is a clear whiskey that has been aged for at least one year in a charred, white oak barrel.

Jacob's Ghost is named after Jim Beam's founding distiller, Jacob Beam, who began distilling white whiskey in 1795.

“While Jacob’s Ghost can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or as a chilled shot, white whiskey is especially versatile in any number of traditional whiskey cocktails, creative new variations, or cocktails that are typically made with white spirits such as vodka or Tequila,” the company said.
