In honor of its 10th Anniversary on Louisville’s famed Whiskey Row, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience announced the release of its commemorative edition of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon. The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience opened its doors to the public on November 15, 2013, and has immersed nearly one million guests worldwide in the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first Distiller.
This 2013 vintage is bottled at 110 proof, commemorating the 10th Anniversary. This unique bottle is hand-dipped in silver wax and features the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience imagery on its specially designed label and tag. Each Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon bottle includes handwritten label notes detailing the exact day it was put in an oak barrel to age, the barrel number, and the date it was bottled.
We are proud to be one of the leaders in returning Whiskey Row to its original glory in the heart of downtown Louisville,” said Jodie Filiatreau, Artisanal Distiller at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. “This commemorative bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage is a unique offering fitting such a momentous occasion.”
This edition comprises 10-year-old Bourbon that was barreled in August, October, or December of 2013. The barrels were aged on the second floor of Rickhouse LL at the Schenley location. The mashbill for this edition comprises Heaven Hill Distillery’s traditional Bourbon Mashbill comprised of 78% corn, 12% malted barley and 10% rye.
Beginning Saturday, November 18, the limited-edition Bourbon will be available for purchase at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience for $109.99 and at select area retailers while supplies last. The public is also invited to celebrate the anniversary with an open house featuring tours and tastings at the Experience, along with a block party held down the street at Repurposed on Main (615 W. Main St.) from 12:00-4:00 PM.
The Bourbon is matured in Heaven Hill’s rickhouses under the careful supervision of Master Distiller Conor O’Driscoll, who monitors the progress of each year’s vintage to ensure it maintains its intended flavor profile and superb quality. Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon has won five “Whiskey of the Year” awards and is one of the most critically acclaimed specialty Bourbons produced by Heaven Hill Distillery, the world’s second-largest holder of aging Bourbon.
