Meanwhile, visitors learn the essential differences between distilling during Evan Williams’ era and Heaven Hill’s modern Bernheim Distillery operations. Insider Tip from The Citiview Louisville: Be sure to sample Evan Williams 1783, the iconic brand's signature, small batch bourbon, which is extra aged and pulled from no more than 80 hand-selected barrels and made using the same sour mash process and traditional recipe made famous by Evan Williams himself.
