Issue #2 - Living Legends is Delivered to You Each Wednesday
This Week We Take A Look at:
Linda Hayes
A legend who lives behind the scenes!
Living Legends
by Colonel Steve Akley
With our Living Legends Series, we take a look at the true players in the world of bourbon and how they have impacted the industry. It's going to be a fun journey, I hope you will join me each Wednesday as we explore the Living Legends of Bourbon.
PS - Why is a Cadillac the logo for the Living Legends series? Well, that's not any Cadillac, it's the tail fin of a 1959 Caddy, which I think is the greatest automobile ever built. That's just a personal choice, though. I also like the fact the name of the car, "Cadillac" can be synonymous with the "greatest version of something." If you say, "That's the Cadillac" of golf clubs," you are saying, "it's the best." Since we are celebrating the "biggest contributors to bourbon" it just feels right.

Linda Hayes
Legacy Events Manager

The Linda Hayes File
  • 40+ year employee of Jim Beam
  • Has worked with a "Who's Who" of bourbon legends: Booker Noe, Jerry Dalton, Pamela Heilmann, Fred Noe, Kathleen DiBenedetto and Freddie Noe.
Linda Hayes is the definition of a Living Legend. She's enjoyed a long career in the bourbon business, mostly behind the scenes, but that doesn't reduce her status as a legend. She's had the important role of working with the Beam family and is often the person keeping them on-point as they balance the everyday duties of making whiskey, dealing with corporate, media and the public.

She also coordinates events at the distillery giving access to the family to employees so Jim Beam keeps the feel of a family business even thought it's a global corporation and the largest bourbon distillery in the world. 

Best of all, Linda does all of this with a great attitude and smile. She's a living legend in the bourbon business and a great person.

Featured Virtual Bourbon Event
A Bourbon Class, Two Samples for Less Than The Price of a Pour!
Samples of 1973 Stitzel-Weller + Weller S.R.
This Whiskey is Legendary!
The old Stitzel-Weller Whiskey remains the gold standard for dusty pours. Our Dusty Hunter Wes Hardin scored a 1973 bottle of Cabin Still he is going to share for via a class that costs a fraction of what just the pour costs at a bourbon bar. Plus, not only do you get a 1 1/2 ounce pour of 1973 Stitzel-Weller bourbon, you also get a pour of Weller Special Reserve and a look at the history of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery.
