Kentucky’s first commercial distillery was established in 1783, the name of the man behind it; Evan Williams. Many years and barrels later, their master distillers are still producing Bourbon the right way, using his same time-honoured methods. The result is a Bourbon thatŐs smooth, rich, and easy to enjoy. Evan Williams Extra Aged is aged for a full 5 years and served at 43% – it has been longer in the barrel and goes stronger into the bottle giving a true and historic taste of Kentucky straight bourbon.
