About A. Smith Bowman Distillery
Modeled after our experimental port-finished bourbon that won the 2016 World’s Best Bourbon award, Isaac Bowman takes our bourbon, aged in American White Oak barrels, and finishes it in barrels that have been previously used to age port wine. This results in deep wood tannins, caramel, and spicy notes that are elegantly combined with flavors of jam-like fruit for a refreshingly smooth 92 proof finish.
Named for a true American pioneer, Captain Isaac Bowman was a soldier and militia officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War. In the late 1700s, he settled at the Fort Bowman estate in Northern Virginia.
