announce the September 2013 opening of The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience™. The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience will be a multi-million dollar artisanal distillery, immersive tourism experience and retail location which will celebrate the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first commercial distiller and namesake of Heaven Hill’s flagship Bourbon brand. Evan Williams, an early Trustee of the City of Louisville, wharfmaster, and builder of the first county clerk’s office and city jail, set up his early distillery in 1783 at what is now Sixth and Main Streets in downtown Louisville—almost directly across Main Street from where the new attraction will be located.
