Product description

Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch honors the year that Evan Williams founded Kentucky’s First Distillery. This small batch Bourbon is pulled from less than 200 barrels. It’s extra-aged, bottled at 90 proof and uses the same sour mash process and traditional recipe made popular by our namesake, Evan Williams Black Label. Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch shares in the heritage of Evan Williams Black Label, which is the second largest selling brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the U.S., as both are named after Kentucky's first distiller. Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch is a brilliant honey with aromas of oaky vanilla, sauteed butter and buttered sweet corn and a taste of semi-sweet oak.

    I've tried all the expensive whiskeys, and I always find myself right back here to 1783 best batch.

    One of my favorite batches, sweet smooth but still bold.

    If you drink it straight and neat, I think, you will like it. Not too sweet.

    Evan never disappoints.

    This a wonderful bourbon for value drinkers. I tried Wild Turkey 101, but found it too sweet with a cherry flavor which is not to my liking. Evan Williams 1783 has a dryer taste, which appeals to me. My first bottle was a major surprise.

    I enjoy it straight, and it is more smooth than any Makers Mark, Knob Creek, or any other over-priced bourbon I've tried. Too bad tha Belmont Beverage in my area is always shelf-empty.

    1783 Small Batch is simply the overall best tasting bourbon for the dollar in the entire industry. I have yet to experience such a high quality Small Batch bourbon on the market that can match flavor and cost of 1783. There are other excellent Small Batch bourbons for sale but you would have to spend nearly double to match the 1783 flavor, I know because I tried. On those nights when I desire a truly special bourbon, I pour 1783 into my favorite glass, neat, and just enjoy a few hours of satisfying evening time. This distinct bourbon EW distillers have bottled in 1783 Small Batch is the perfect bullseye of quality bourbon and price for me.

    straight, over a small amount of ice.



Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
