“Beam Around the World” was the THIRD Jim Beam National Association Convention. It was hosted in July 1973 by the Wolverine Beam Bottle & Specialties Club in Detroit, Michigan, and this bottle was made to commemorate it.

The 4/5th quart decanter bottle is shaped as a round blue world with a gold #3 and a map of the United States showing the images of the bottles from the first two conventions and words that read “Beam Around the World” on the front side. Below the gold #3 are the words “NATIONAL CONVENTION”.

On the back side of the bottle are banners showing the names of over 40 clubs in attendance. There’s a large banner with the words “July Detroit 1973” and “Hosted by Wolverine Beam Bottle & Specialties Club”. The stopper is a completely gold fox in a top hat and with the #3 on his chest!

This special ceramic decanter is from the makers of Jim Beam Whiskey. It stands approximately 14” tall and 7” wide. The cork stopper is partially missing, and the cork that’s present does not allow the top to sit safely on the decanter but would if the cork was replaced or removed. The original red US Internal Revenue tax strip is still present on the stopper. The gold foil strip on the front of the decanter reads Beam 86 proof 100 months old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Part of their Clubs and Organizations Series, this bottle is a creation of James B. Beam Distilling Co., KY-DRB-230. The bottle is Genuine Handcrafted Regal China 1973, C. Miller, Regal China Corporation; 145, Liquor Bottle.

This is a wonderful commemorative bottle with no chips or cracks, and bottle collectors or Jim Beam fanatics would appreciate this unique decanter!
