Evan Williams Bourbon
In 1783, he opened a distillery on the banks of Ohio River, to work with locally grown corn abundant in Kentucky. Evan Williams was known to be an all-rounder and a likeable guy. Entrepreneur, politician, he really thrived as a Bourbon whiskey distiller. Even today, Heaven Hill, who bought the distillery, is still using the traditional methods set up by Evan Williams himself to craft his Bourbon. The Evan Williams Bourbon is today the second best-selling Bourbon in the United States and worldwide.
