Beam's Eight Star is a blended whiskey produced in Clermont, Kentucky and Frankfort, Kentucky by Beam Suntory, a subsidiary of Suntory Holdings of Osaka, Japan, which is headquartered in the suburbs of Chicago, in Deerfield, IL.[1]

Beam's Eight Star is an 80-proof (40% alcohol by volume) mixture of 75% grain neutral spirits and 25% straight whiskey. It is inexpensive due to its high proportion of neutral spirits. Neutral grain spirits do not have to be aged like straight whiskey and can be mass-produced at a much faster rate.

The manufacturer is identified on the label as "The Clear Spring Distilling Company".
