The Calories in Evan Williams Bourbon Whiskey
Evan Williams Bourbon Whiskey is the second-best selling whiskey worldwide. It’s also the official bourbon of the Championship Bull Riding events. You can drink it as a shot, on the rocks or in mixed drinks.
A 1-ounce shot of Evan Williams Bourbon Whiskey has 69 calories, according to DrinksMixer.com. That’s the same number of calories other popular whiskeys have.
Evan Williams is sometimes served with other whiskeys in a drink called the Six Wise Men. Drink this 6-ounce beverage, and you’ll consume 414 calories.
Pour a shot that’s a bit bigger -- 1.5 ounces -- and you’re getting the same amount of alcohol in a 5-ounce glass of wine or a 12-ounce beer. Your calorie count will be a bit different, however. A 12-ounce beer will have 149 calories, and a 5-ounce glass of red wine about 100. That compares to about 104 calories in your whiskey, based on the DrinksMixer.com calorie count.
