Certificate
Made with a mashbill of 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% barley, Evan Williams Extra Age is America’s 2nd best-selling bourbon. Overstretched stocks struggling to satisfy that demand led to this bourbon’s previous 7-year-old age statement being dropped. We understand it is now between 5 and 7 years old.
Eponymously named after Evan Williams who, in 1783, opened Kentucky’s first commercial distillery, this bourbon is made just a few blocks from the site where Evan Williams built that distillery.
