About Evan Williams
After emigrating from Wales to Kentucky in 1783, Evan Williams established a distillery along the banks of the Ohio River. His eponymous distillery, which quickly earned a reputation for producing some of the finest bourbon in the country, was Kentucky's first commercial distillery. Today, many years and barrels later, the Evan Williams Distillery continues to produce bourbon using the same time-honored methods William pioneered over two centuries ago.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
