Phenomenal value for money, Evan Williams Extra Aged is bottled at 43% alcohol and aged for far longer than required by law (5-6 years). The extra proof and age makes a Bourbon that is sweet, rich and full of character yet easy to drink- ideal sipped neat, in cocktails, or with mixers. Evan Williams Bourbons are named after the Welshman who was thought to be Ketucky’s first commercial distiller back in 1783. Nose: Light with deep vanilla and mint. Taste: Notes of oak, brown sugar and caramel. Finish: Medium to big. Evan Williams is the second largest selling Kentucky Straight Bourbon in the world! It is made at and marketed by Heaven Hill Distilleries, who were founded after the repeal of prohibition in 1934 by the Shapira brothers when they were approached by members of the famous Beam family with a proposal to build a new distillery. To this day, Heaven Hill is owned and operated by the Shapira family and has Parker and Craig Beam, the 6th and 7th generation of the Beam family, in charge of whiskeymaking. This is the secret behind the quality and consistency of whiskies at Heaven Hill, which always offer fantastic value for money!
