The whiskey company, which has been around since 1795, sought the Ukrainian-born beauty for several reasons, including her "love of bourbon," "warm personality" and "global relevance." As part of her preparation to front Jim Beam's "Make History" campaign, the Black Swan star actually spent time in Kentucky with the company's seventh generation distiller, Fred Noe, touring the town and distillery.
