Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2010 is a single barrel, single vintage bottling of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Founded shortly after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, Heaven Hill became the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the United States. Heaven Hill’s success is due to a mix of good business acumen, continuity, heritage and uncompromising craftsmanship. The company is still owned by descendants of the founding Shapira brothers and five generations of the famous Beam family have overseen the distillation. Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, Heaven Hill is the world’s second largest holder of bourbon whiskey with over 675,000 charred white oak barrels ageing in 42 open-rick warehouses. Double-distillation takes place at the modern Bernheim facility where Craig and Parker Beam produce rye and wheat influenced bourbons as well as straight rye, corn and wheat whiskies, using their own family yeast strain – now in its fifth generation! By law, Bourbon must be made up of at least 51% corn and be aged a minimum of two years in a new charred white oak barrel, standards that were pioneered by early Bourbon makers such as Evan Williams and Rev. Elijah Craig.
Evan Williams 2008 Single Barrel is a super-premium bottling of Evan Williams’ flagship brand and is the world’s only vintage-dated Single Barrel Bourbon and is one of the world’s most acclaimed whiskeys. The first American Whiskey ever to win The Spirit Journal ‘s Whiskey of the Year award, Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage is bottled solely from one barrel hand-selected by Master Distillers Parker and Craig Beam.
This bottling of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage was bottled in 2018 at 43.3% abv.
