New to Lukas Wine & Spirits, the A. Smith Bowman Distillery!
From the beautiful & historic state of Virginia, comes the A. Bowman Distillery!
“A. Smith Bowman’s distilling roots began before Prohibition. The Bowman family had a dairy & granary farm in Fairfax County, VA that they called Sunset Hills. Excess grain from the farm was used to start distilling spirits. In 1935, after the Repeal of Prohibition, Abram Smith Bowman built and licensed a slightly more modern distillery. In 1988, the distillery was moved to its current location, nestled in the historic city of Fredericksburg, VA in Spotsylvania County. Here, A. Smith Bowman continued and provided great contributions to our country, the state of Virginia and the whiskey industry.
As a small and privately owned company, A. Smith Bowman Distillery continus the time-honered traditions on which it was founded. With the help of out trusty still, “Mary”, A. Smith Bowman produces an assortment of spirits distilled from only the finest natural ingredients, crafted by hand, every step of the way. We have a passion for making premium spirits honoring the legacy of Virginia’s first settlers.”- per the A. Smith Bowman website
