Elijah Craig

Barrel Proof Bourbon (0.7l, 61.8%*) *please note that the ABV of this bottle may vary

Ohhh the wonders of Bourbon...

An hour away from Louisville there's a lovely town of Bardstown where almost a century ago two brothers decided to make Whiskey. Right after Prohibition they set up shop and became the largest family-owned distillery in America in just a few decades. Heaven Hill Distillery is still owned by the Shapira family and they have no intentions to stop making the best Bourbon. Two Master Distillers, Denny Potter and Jodie Filiatreau, combine their experience and knowledge for the magic of Whiskey-making and produce critically acclaimed Spirits that amaze every Whiskey lover.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon, named Whisky of the year 2017 by Whisky Advocate is an experience of Bourbon in its purest form, uncut and straight from the cask. Aged for long 12 years in new charred oak barrels, every Whisky is in danger of being dominated by the oak flavor. But a sip of Elijah Craig brings forth phenomenal flavors and glamorous aromas. It's Bourbon at its apex and it will definitely offer you a big warm Kentucky Hug. Get two bottles: one to share with your seasoned friends, and one for yourself alone. Let your first sip be straight and taste the magic, then add a few drops of water and fine-tune the flavor.

There are wonders to be revealed in life.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
In 1996, more than 90,000 barrels, and one of their production buildings were destroyed in a fire. That's almost 24 million bottles-worth of premium American Whiskey. Rivers of flaming spirit were flowing in and around the distillery.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
