The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is a multi-million dollar artisanal distillery, immersive tourism experience, and retail location that celebrates the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first commercial distiller and namesake of Heaven Hill’s flagship Bourbon brand. It is located along downtown Louisville’s historic “Whiskey Row” and across the street from the riverfront location where Evan Williams’ distillery once stood in the late 18th century.
“We drop in our grain by hand, hydrate and put in our yeast by hand, clean the fermenter and cooker by hand, and run the stills—all by hand. When I say it’s a handcrafted Bourbon, I’m telling you the truth.”
There are two tasting rooms that each serve different samples. Make it your mission to try them both!
