Abraham Bowman Port Finished Bourbon from A. Smith Bowman Distillery was awarded World’s Best Bourbon at the North America Whiskies & Spirits Conference in New York, where the World Whiskies Awards were announced.
Master Distiller Brian Prewitt accepted the award at the Whiskies & Spirits Conference.
“It is a real honor to receive this award,” Prewitt says. “The Abraham Bowman line has a special place in my heart since it’s our chance to experiment with unique mashbills or finishes, so to take home to top prize for the bourbon category is very exciting.”
The 2016 World Whiskies Awards for America and Canada were announced on February 23 at the Whiskies & Spirits Conference in New York. Whiskies in each category were subject to rigorous blind taste testing to determine the best of each category.
