About this product

Elijah Craig's mash bill has a high corn proportion, (at about 78%) alongside rye and malted barley. Once distilled it's filled into new oak barrels that are fired for 40 seconds to achieve a Level 3 char and aged between eight and 12 years.

Reverend Elijah Craig was a Baptist preacher and entrepreneur who built paper and wool mills in Georgetown, Kentucky. Today it's distilled at Heaven Hill Distillery in Bardstown, Ky., the largest family-owned-and-operated distillery in the country.

In 1789, Elijah Craig was one of the first distillers to age his whiskey in new charred oak barrels, with many crediting him and his Bourbon as one of the founding fathers of the category. Kentucky Bourbon was clearly influenced by his process.
