Red Stag by Jim Beam -- Red Stag is an all-new cherry-infused offspring of the world's No. 1 selling bourbon. The new product is scheduled to launch in June and is the latest innovation from Beam Global Spirits & Wine Inc. Red Stag by Jim Beam recently announced a partnership with Kid Rock as a headline sponsor of Kid Rock's 2009 Rock N' Rebels Tour, which will hit 25 cities across North America this Summer. Kid Rock will kick off the Red Stag by Jim Beam partnership on June 14, when the Detroit native will serve as Grand Marshal of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 race at Michigan International Speedway.

Beam Global and Robby Gordon Receive Elite Award -- On Thursday, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) and the National Center for DWI Courts (NCDC) awarded the NADCP Ambassador Award to Beam Global Spirits & Wine, Inc., the leading American spirits company and industry leader in the battle against hardcore drunk driving.
