In honor of their winning the World Series in 2016, and as part of their first season as the Official Bourbon of the Chicago Cubs, Jim Beam made limited edition Chicago Cubs bourbon that will be available all over Chicago starting this June. Each bottle of “Game 7 Batch” bourbon—which was previewed by brand ambassador Mila Kunis all over the Friendly Confines bars on April 15—features a limited edition expression of the four year old bourbon bottled with a commemorative label, blue cap and batch sticker. What really separates this edition of Jim Beam from all the other bottles that are matured for the same amount of time is that each bottle of “Game 7 Batch” finished its barrel maturation process on the exact day—November 2, 2016—that the Chicago Cubs won their epic Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians. Described as “delivering an oak vanilla aroma and a sweet finish that mirrors the ending of last year’s historic season” this is one bourbon that’s sure to be popular with both Beam and Cubs fans alike.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
