A. Smith Bowman Distillery

Bowman's Imported Rum

I exhibit 1 of the 2 labels of my collection. Other labels differ only in details. Undisplayed labels are variations with minor differences.


Nestled on the banks of the Rappahannock River in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia, A. Smith Bowman Distillery continues a time-honored tradition of blending choice natural ingredients with human craftsmanship and the latest technology to produce its fine line of spirits. The company was founded in 1935 on Sunset Hills Farm (known today as Reston, Virginia) by Abram Smith Bowman and his sons, Smith and Delong. Since then, it has been operated by succeeding generations of the Bowman family, making it the oldest family-owned bourbon distillery in the United States.

The distillery moved from Reston to Fredericksburg in 1987.
