Evan Williams Black Label 1L 43°
Created with an original formula dating back to 1783, and crafted in the purest of traditions of Sour Mash Whiskey, Straight Bourbon Evan Williams (with a high percentage of corn, around 80%) has been distilled at the heart of Kentucky, official and only country to hold the Bourbon appelation, an equivalent of the French AOC, 'Appelation d'Origine Controlee', official quality mark dedicated to local products.
The "Sour Mash" technique allows for steady production characteristics from one batch to another. Incorporating a part of the liquids remaining from the first distillation in the next fermentation batch, a "genetic" link is created from one batch to another. Sour mash is truly the whiskey DNA.
The typical rich and silky flavours of 7 Year-old Evan Williams are the reason why it has been acclaimed worldwide by Bourbon enthusiats. This Black Label version of the famous Evan Williams Bourbon whiskey shows character and great value.
Evan Williams Black Label offers a vanilla profile, with spices and leather notes. Charred oak aromas and lemon also feature in this great spirit.
Today, Evan Williams is the second best-selling Bourbon whiskey in the USA and worldwide.

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.
