Jim Beam “Always Welcome” is the clear commitment to an open and inspiring “Welcoming Spirit”. The Jim Beam Welcome Sessions are unique events that take place around the world. This year, the event is brought to Austria for the first time. “You’re welcome here” – this commitment is deeply rooted in the company, the world’s No. 1 among bourbon whiskeys, and goes back to Master Distiller Fred Noe with his famous motto “Come as a friend, leave as family”.



The special welcoming spirit of the Jim Beam Welcome Sessions

On May 23rd, we could experience this special attitude to life with the Jim Beam Welcome Sessions in Austria. The event took place in the unique atmosphere of the Badeschiff in Vienna: An exclusive concert with Julian Le Play, to which 100 music fans, who had won their tickets via Jim Beam’s own competition page, were invited.

Karin Kucova, Brand Activation Manager Beam Suntory Austria:

“Jim Beam wants to focus on the connecting power of music to create unique live experiences and thus make the spirit behind “Always Welcome” tangible. The Jim Beam Welcome Sessions are a platform for unique moments that welcome everyone and connect them even more closely.”

Jim Beam continues global Always Welcome campaign

On the international level, Jim Beam focuses on the spirit of community and connection as well – music fans and their favourite artists can finally meet and celebrate again.

The highlight of the global Welcome Sessions is the partnership with the world-famous rock band Muse. This special and attention-grabbing collaboration offers various live experiences during the band’s festival tour.

Started in 2022 with a concert at the legendary Cavern Club in Exeter, England – the location that welcomed the rock band to a gig for the first time many years ago – the tour culminated last year in an extraordinary welcome session: On site at the Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont, Kentucky.
