*Each year, Evan Williams celebrates being American-made and owned with the release of limited-edition American Hero bottles and by recognizing a diverse group of U.S. military veterans, named Evan Williams American-Made Heroes. They exemplify what it means to serve and have continued to give back to their community through involvement with nonprofits serving the veteran community. American-Made Hero consideration is extended to veterans we meet through the annual grant application process.
