As a distinctive hot sauce incorporating the smooth bite of aged bourbon, Jim Beam hot sauce adds a flavorful kick to meats, vegetable dishes and dips. Some really tasty heat is generated in this sauce, which also features bits of red and green bell peppers, along with the extra fiery kick of spicy chili peppers.
Known as the most popular bourbon all over the world, Jim Beam bourbon whiskey and its distilleries were established around 1800 by the Beam family, who still own and operate the company.

In addition to Jim Beam hot sauce, the company also makes Jim Beam BBQ beef jerky and Jim Beam jalapeño sunflower seeds.
