NEAT: The Story of Bourbon at the Grand with Jim Beam Tasting

NEAT is a feature-length documentary that dives into the rich and storied world of bourbon. We learn what it takes to distill the worldʼs fastest growing spirit, as well as connect with the people that make the bourbon culture unique. Thematically, NEAT explores how the story of bourbon is about more than the liquid in the glass-it is about WHY you open a bottle and who is around you when you do. Bourbon has a way of taking you back in time. In a way, it forces you to slow down. Bourbon is a lesson in time: how to spend it, who to spend it with, and how to savor the moment.
