Let’s face it: When it comes to Father’s Day gifts, there is nothing new under the sun. After you’ve given dear old dad his 15th tie, you’re basically tapped out. Well, Jim Beam is offering a creative solution to Father’s Day gifting fatigue: For the price of a bottle of Jim Beam Black, the whiskey makers will send you and your father on a bourbon-fueled bonding trip to Kentucky.
For $25, bourbon lovers who purchase the Bonding Over Bourbon Experience on JimBeam.com will receive round-trip flights for two to Kentucky, a two-night stay at a Louisville hotel, a behind-the-scenes Jim Beam distillery tour, an exclusive meet and greet with a master distiller, dinner for two at a renowned Louisville restaurant, and a round of golf at a local course.
Not that you needed more incentive, but the package also includes a limited-edition Jim Beam Black box complete with a decanter, rocks glasses, and luggage tag.
"With this unique Father's Day gift package, we hope to provide the perfect setting for fathers and sons or daughters to share some stories, create some new memories, and enjoy some good bourbon together with the Beam family," Jim Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe said.
After a frenzied first day of sales, Jim Beam is restocking its Bonding Over Bourbon Experience on Thursday, June 7 at 11 a.m. ET. The first round of packages sold out in 11 minutes, so you’ll have to act fast to snap up this opportunity. The company does intend to restock the experience intermittently leading up to Father’s Day. Follow Jim Beam’s Facebook page for updates. You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase.
