Reverend Elijah Craig founded his distillery in 1789 along Elkhorn Creek in present day Georgetown, Kentucky. He is credited with being the first distiller to age his whiskey in charred oak barrels, earning his place in history as the Father of Bourbon.
First brought to market in 1986, Heaven Hill’s Master Distillers were selecting a small number of barrels of the finest Bourbon to make Elijah Craig long before the term “small batch” even existed. It is this attention to detail and superb craftsmanship that give Elijah Craig an ideal balance of age, robust body and rich flavour. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is uncut, straight from the barrel without chill filtering, the nose, taste, and finish created by 12 years of ageing are preserved in their simplest form.
