Voiced by 7th Generation Master Distiller Fred Noe, the decanter-turned virtual voice assistant includes a sleek compartment for bourbon storage and voice command capabilities. While he can’t turn off the lights or sing you a song, “JIM” bridges the gap between Silicon Valley and Kentucky with unique artificial intelligence that will answer your questions… and pour you a glassof bourbon.

Behind this first-ever artificially intelligent decanter is Jim Beam, the maker of the world’s best-selling bourbon and last year’s Jim Beam Apple Watch. A “HomeBar” engineered with more than 200 years of bourbon know-how, “JIM” is advancing the technology of shot pouring and drinking, providing bourbon lovers a high-tech way to enjoy America’s Native Spirit.

Unlike other smart home devices, “JIM” not only answers life’s most important questions, but also offers groundbreaking shot pouring functionality that allows legal drinking age consumers to serve up a drink from the comfort of their couch.

“For decades, we produced unique limited-edition decanters that are now collectors’ items. And now, we’re introducing a smart decanter that lets fans enjoy their bourbon on demand with friends and family,” said Jim Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe. This Kentucky Straight Bourbon is aged twice as long as required, delivering an oak vanilla, spicy backdrop with a toasted oak, sweet finish.
