Legent is a first-of-its-kind unique innovation that begins with Beam Suntory’s classic family recipe for Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The bourbon is finished in wine and sherry casks then blended with more Kentucky Straight Bourbon, resulting in a perfectly balanced yet complex and layered whiskey that is truly extraordinary. The super-premium bourbon is expertly distilled by Fred Noe, seventh-generation Master Distiller of Jim Beam, bourbon’s pioneering family, and artfully blended by Shinji Fukuyo, fifth-ever Chief Blender of Suntory, the founding house of Japanese whiskey.
Legent is available in 750mL bottles (47% abv / 94 proof) in select markets throughout the United States for a suggested retail price of $34.99 USD
