Jim Beam Brands Co. was fined $600,000 by Kentucky’s environmental agency this month for a July warehouse fire that caused bourbon to spill into the Kentucky River, killing fish there and in the Ohio River.
Jim Beam agreed to the fine in a Dec. 6 order from the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, and it will also reimburse the state agency $112,000 for its costs.
