Evan Williams Single Barrel is the only vintage dated single barrel Bourbon on the market. Similar to the way vintage wines are selected, our distillers hand-select individual barrels that meet the specifications they’ve established. Then each bottle is marked with the vintage date it was put into oak, along with the year it was bottled and the exact barrel number of the single barrel that the Bourbon was drawn from.
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.
