This small batch bourbon is a true tribute to the heroism of John J., Abraham, Joseph, and Isaac Bowman. These Virginia militia officers fought in the American Revolutionary War, and we distill this hand-crafted whiskey using only the finest corn, rye, and malted barley. The result is a delicious bourbon with distinct hints of vanilla, spice, and oak. Enjoy it neat or on the rocks.


    In 1927, before establishing Virginia’s oldest distillery, A. Smith Bowman purchased the 7,200-acre Sunset Hills farm in Fairfax County with one objective—to open up a dairy and granary. Shortly after bringing the idea to life, his fields became so abundant that he needed a use for the excess grain. This one defining moment changed the entire course of the A. Smith Bowman legacy and ultimately led to the best whiskey in the world.

    In 1934, A. Smith Bowman built a groundbreaking distillery on the farm land and turned it into a family-owned business. With the help of his two sons, he produced the first ever batch of Virginia Gentleman. Up until the 1950s, A. Smith Bowman Distillery was the sole producer of legal whiskey in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Since then, the focus has shifted from our classic spirit to producing premium handcrafted small batches and experimental editions that embody innovation at its core.

    Today, our historic family-owned distillery has relocated to Fredericksburg, yet still continues to balance our long-lived traditions, honoring one of Virginia’s great pioneers. Most recently in 2016 and 2017, A. Smith Bowman Distillery won the “World’s Best Bourbon” at the World Whiskies Awards — solidifying us as Virginia’s Most Award-Winning Distillery.


    At A. Smith Bowman Distillery, we know a thing or two about aging well. As the oldest distillery in Virginia, we’ve learned a lot about our craft, not only from our founding fathers but from experimentation and innovation. Along our journey, we’ve always paid attention to the tiniest details in every step of the process. From fermentation of our mash to filling up our stills, nicknamed “Mary” and “George”, which pay homage to the parents of the Bowman Brothers — we stay true to our time honored traditions. As a result, we have our award-winning pioneer spirits to showcase.

    His Innovative Spirit Led to Ours
    Brian Prewitt knows a thing or two about producing award-winning whiskey. Since 2013, the Colorado-raised master distiller has carried on A. Smith Bowman’s family traditions and earned a plethora of prestigious accolades, most notably the “World’s Best Bourbon” two years in a row.

    With more than 20 years of experience in the brewing and distilling industry, we can assure you that Brian has never had a dull moment. His career has been centered around innovativeness for many years, which is just one of many reasons why he’s an integral part of the success of our distillery. Brian loves pushing the limits and experimenting with new ingredients, in addition to introducing new cutting-edge technology to the team.

    When asked about his role as Master Distiller at A. Smith Bowman Distillery, Prewitt stated, “This is my dream job. To be able to work with the high quality spirits that are in the Bowman line already, plus have the freedom to try my hand at some experiments, well, I’m just ecstatic.”
