Evan Williams 1783 is our signature, small batch Bourbon meaning that each batch is pulled from no more than 80 hand-selected barrels. It is extra-aged and uses the same sour mash process and traditional recipe made popular by our namesake. The result is a classic Bourbon- smooth rich, and worthy of the name. Evan Williams earned the title “Kentucky’s First Distiller” in 1783, when he began his distillery on the banks of the Ohio River. Today that pioneering heritage is honored in the crating of this special Bourbon. Evan Williams 1783 has earned the “Highest Recommendation” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
