Business Magnate. He turned the family bourbon business into an iconic American industry. Under him, the business thrived despite prohibition. He left the distilling business to grow citrus in Florida, among other things. When prohibition ended in 1934 he was ready to fire up the still. He built and moved to a new distillery near his home which is the current location. From this point forward, the bourbon was called "Jim Beam."
