Bowman touts World's Best Bourbon distinction for second year

  • 0

A. Smith Bowman Distillery has again been awarded the distinction of “World’s Best Bourbon” by Whisky Magazine.

This year’s award was presented for the Spotsylvania-based distillery’s John J. Bowman Single Barrel Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

The distillery’s Abraham Bowman Port Finished Bourbon took home the same prize in 2016.

Master distiller Brian Prewitt accepted the award on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at the Whisky Magazine Awards America presentation in New York City.

“We could not be more excited to receive this honor for the second year in a row,” Prewitt said. “For our small distillery in Virginia, receiving the title of “World’s Best Bourbon” two years in a row for two different bourbons is something truly special for us. We’re very thankful for this recognition.”
