Evan Williams Bourbon, will continue to be made using Heaven Hill Distillery’s traditional bourbon mashbill of 78% corn, 12% malted barley. and 10% rye. It will also continue to be produced using a marriage of barrels, aged between 6 and 8 years old.

Commenting on the news, Julie Cole, Evan Williams Senior Brand Manager, said: “Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch pays homage to some of the earliest years of licensed distilling in Kentucky, and an important year for Bourbon and the Commonwealth’s signature industry. With a return to the original 90 proof, the award-winning mashbill of Evan Williams 1783 is full-flavored and works both as a cocktail base and stand-alone sipper. We are excited to bring more focus to what is known as the ‘best kept secret’ in the Evan Williams Bourbon family.”
