A true American.

Evan Williams was a true American pioneer and one of the first distillers in the USA who started exploiting corn. He was known as a jack-of-all-trades, a master in one – making corn into damn fine Bourbon. Sure the distillery (Heaven Hill) producing this Whiskey has nothing to do with the original distillery made by Evan, but the respect for the man and his trade made them carry his name, and they’re certainly proud of that.

The Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage is bottled solely from one barrel, selected by Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam. It is vintage dated, meaning each bottle is marked with the vintage date it was put into oak and the year it was bottled. Depending on which month the Whiskey was bottled in, it is either nine or 10 year old.

The combination of soft and dry with some smoke to it.

Big, with heat on the finish that just tells you that the story doesn’t end with one glass…

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Heaven Hill is a well respected distillery, even amongst their competitors. After the fire of 1996, the local major distilleries Jim Beam and Brown Forman shared their stills with Heaven Hill while they rebuilt.
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.
