ABOUT Evan Williams
Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience combines two of America’s favorite things: history and bourbon. Whether you’re a history buff, whiskey enthusiast, or just looking for something exciting to do in the city, this is the perfect destination to learn and sip at the same time. Experience the life and contributions of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first commercial distiller, through guided tours and educational tastings. The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is home to our Artisanal Distillery, which bridges the gap between whiskey making in Evan’s day, to the production styles of today. Taste bourbon history.
