Product description

Our Kentucky Straight Bourbon is full of character and simply done right. Named after Evan Williams, who opened Kentucky’s 1st Distillery in 1783. Our Bottled-In-Bond Bourbon is 100 proof and follows the exacting standards of a Bottled-In-Bond product; aged for four years, distilled in one distilling season at one distillery and under U.S. government supervision. Evan Williams Bottled-In-Bond is bright gold in color. It has aromas of caramel with hints of vanilla, oak and barley with a taste of citrus on top of vanilla and black pepper notes. Evan Williams is the #2 selling KY Straight Bourbon brand in the world. In 2019 Evan Williams Bottled-In-Bond received a Gold and Comsumer's Choice SIP Award.

    Once a WT 101 drinker. One day my local shop was out, I ended up picking up a bottle of this. My new standard. Thanks for an outstanding product. Ice is all that's needed.

    I am new to bourbon but not new to spirits. There are lots of bourbons with lots of hype and very high price tags. I wanted something easy to find and easy to enjoy and most importantly gave me affordable quality. I found Evan Williams Bottled in Bond. I am sold. I have several market leaders in my cabinet this is what I find myself reaching for. Neat, rocks, or mixer it meets my mood and my needs. Thank you Heaven Hill. I look forward to trying your other expressions and brands.

    If this was a boxer, it would be known for hitting way above its weight class. Great flavor for sipping neat, on the rocks, or in cocktails. I am happy to pay for this bourbon because it never disappoints. It has an excellent corn flavor, light spice, perfect proof, and nice oak hints, with a solid finish.

    This is a bottle I originally picked up because of the price. It has quickly become a mainstay. I'm amazed that such a drinkable bourbon can be had for such a fair price. To be fair, multiple Evan Williams bourbon options have surprised me. In a world where prices are always going up, it's refreshing to know good values can still be had.

    I myself like alot of others have said in the comments have tried several bourbons over the years that were more expensive and this was surprisingly comparable but at a much lower price. Thought it was going to have to much of a burn but didn't. It goes down good neat or with a cube of ice. Definitely will be in my stock for every day drinking from now on!

    For the money, don’t think you can beat it, i like it more than regular makers, JW black label probably a lot more in that range. Worth a try if you haven’t had it. Definitely some burn and heat but it had good flavor as well.

    I recently purchased my first bottle of Evan Williams and it is delicious. I bought it for a chocolate cake recipe that calls for bourbon (this cake is amazing between the bourbon and black coffee it's moist and very flavorful). Anyway tonight I finally decided to make a drink to sip on at bedtime and am really enjoying my drink. I added ice and a little water.

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.
