Sick of drinking bourbon alone? Jim Beam has released a new decanter that will sort of keep you company, for six months.
Meet JIM, the world’s first artificially intelligent bourbon decanter.
JIM doesn’t quite have the abilities of an Amazon Echo or Google Home, but it will pour you whiskey shots on command and answer your questions in a Kentucky accent (the voice of seventh generation master distiller Fred Noe).
JIM runs on 3G, so you don’t even need Wi-Fi to make the decanter’s fancy functions work. However, the JIM plan is “only set for six months,” according to USA Today.
A Jim Beam spokesperson told the USA Today that the $34.90 decanters quickly sold out after going on sale Wednesday, but they expected to have more in stock by Friday. Releasing a talking, whiskey-pouring decanter right in time for the holidays was certainly a wise decision.
