Evan Williams Bourbon Experience was the first distillery to return to Louisville, Kentucky’s Main Street commonly referred to as Whiskey Row in nearly a century. When they opened their doors back in 2013 it was a homecoming for the brands namesake Evan Williams who operated Kentucky’s first commercial distillery in the state at this location starting in 1783.
Watch Evan Williams Bourbon Experience Artisanal Master Distiller Emeritus Charlie Downs and Artisanal Master Distiller Jodie Filiatreau and friends as they roll a commemorative barrel from Louisville’s 10’3″ tall Bourbon District barrel down Whiskey Row into the front door of the distillery.
Then listen to Heaven Hill’s President Max L. Shapira as he introduced the first bourbon ever released from this barrel a day distillery – ‘Square 6’ a five year old 95 proof small batch bourbon.
You can get more details on this newest release here – 8 Years In, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience on Whiskey Row Releases ‘Square 6’ its 1st Ever Bourbon Whiskey.
Congrats to the team at Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. Cheers!
