The September Gentleman’s Box honors our favorite Master Distiller: Jim Beam. September is the National Bourbon Heritage Month and Gentleman’s Box partnered with Jim Beam featuring the Jim Beam Black Bourbon brand, winner of the 2016 IWSC “bourbon oaks trophy” and is the highest-rated bourbon in the world. Representing Jim Beam is Fred Noe, a 7th Generation Master Distiller and a direct descendent of the original Jim Beam. He worked his way up through the company to learn every step of the process for making bourbon. He has lead the company through innovation, industry awards, new flavors, and is the Brand Ambassador.
Look Good Inspiration:
Beauregard Socks by Dead Soxy are comfortable, no-slip socks made to last. Simplicity, sophisticated, and stylish in a classic pattern designed in Dallas. The Knot Club Tie in the Red Matrix perfectly complements the socks. Made from microfiber and silk, this tie can go from the office to a night out flawlessly. The Knot Club Pocket Square is a wonderful addition to this month’s look in a cherry-plaid pattern. Made from 100% cotton, it’s the accompaniment which distinguishes a well-dressed gentleman. The Sand & Bell Lapel Pin in a Fleur-de-lis is the accessory to complete the look. A classic emblem used in heraldry since ancient times, it’s often used with a compass rose to point north. Imported from Sweden and made from a silver-copper alloy, it will add the finishing touch.
Jim Beam Black Whiskey Stones are the ideal way to chill your drink without a watered-down dilution. Keep them in the freezer until time for use—no impact to flavor, either. A tasty recipe for a Hot Fudge Bourbon Milkshake is included for the modern man who wants a little edge to his milkshake.
Operation Homefront is a featured nonprofit for this month. It provides RELIEF, RESILIENCY, and RECURRING FAMILY SUPPORT programs for military families. It is an organization with a high rating and to which Jim Beam has donated in cash and in-kind, plus volunteer hours since 2008.
