CLER­MONT, Ky. ( AP) — Bour­bon bar­rel No. 15 mil­lion has taken its place in a Jim Beam ware­house in Ken­tucky.

Beam on Mon­day filled its 15 mil­lionth bar­rel of bour­bon since the end of Pro­hi­bi­tion. The com­pany says it’s a first for a Ken­tucky dis­tillery. It was filled and sealed by sev­en­th­gen­er­a­tion Master Dis­tiller Fred Noe and his son, Fred­die, at Beam’s flag­ship dis­tillery in Cler­mont.

Em­ploy­ees at the com­pany’s Cler­mont, Bos­ton and Frank­fort plants signed the bar­rel, which will be stored in a nine-story ware­house re­built by Jim Beam af­ter Pro­hi­bi­tion on the Cler­mont dis­tillery grounds.
