Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A wounded Afghanistan veteran and his father received an early Father's Day gift.

Sergeant Ron Strang and his dad are both big fans of Jim Beam, and the two got to spend some quality time together on a free Mint Julep Tour at the Jim Beam distillery in Clermont.

The afternoon included a tour of the facility, a bourbon tasting and a Father's Day lunch.

For these two, Jim Beam is what they call a family tradition.

The trip was free, thanks to Beam Suntory and Mint Julep Tours. Each took home a souvenier of their special trip: a commemorative bottle.
