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.
