Character Goatson

Full of character, just like its namesake.

Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second-largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grown to become the seventh-largest supplier of Spirits in the US. BUT… they are still family-owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. You’ve got to respect the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill include Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

In 1783, Evan Williams was the guy who opened Kentucky’s first distillery on the banks of the Ohio River. Like its namesake, Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon is full of character. It’s been aged way longer than it’s required by law and the result is a smooth, rich, and approachable Bourbon with flavors of oak, caramel, and brown sugar. Clocking in at a pleasant 86 proof, this lovely amber liquid might just be your next everyday sipper.

In 1996, more than 90,000 barrels, and one of their production buildings were destroyed in a fire. That's almost 24 million bottles-worth of premium American Whiskey. Rivers of flaming spirit were flowing in and around the distillery.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
