Limestone Branch Distillery to Launch Family Recipe Bourbon


March 31, 2022

Limestone Branch Distillery announced it is launching Yellowstone Family Recipe, a craft-distilled bourbon honoring 150 years of Beam- and Dant-family distilling traditions.

The new bourbon, created by Limestone Branch Distillery Master Distiller Stephen Beam, will be available at retail in three allocations throughout 2022 – April, August and fourth quarter – with a limited total production of 6,000 cases.

With plans to be offered annually, Yellowstone Family Recipe provides a complement to the Yellowstone brand family, which includes Yellowstone Select and Yellowstone Limited Edition bourbons.

Inspired by a recipe found in notes from Beam’s grandfather, Guy Beam, and containing cloned yeast using DNA from a yeast jug belonging to Beam’s great-grandfather, Minor Case Beam, Yellowstone Family Recipe reflects the original Yellowstone Bourbon mash bill and carries its original namesake’s six-year age statement. It is this recipe that Stephen Beam has been distilling at Limestone Branch Distillery since 2015 and is now ready to share.

A pre-launch of Yellowstone Family Recipe will take place beginning in April at retail locations in Montana and Wyoming – with availability at Lebanon, Kentucky’s Limestone Branch Distillery and retail locations in the state of Kentucky following shortly thereafter – to honor the 150th anniversary of Yellowstone National Park. A limited allocation of Yellowstone Family Recipe will be available across the U.S. in August, with the remaining allocation rolling out in the fourth quarter of 2022. 

Bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV), Yellowstone Family Recipe will have a suggested retail price of $69.99.
