They say Elijah kind of invented Bourbon. Well he didn’t. Great man though!
 
This Kentucky Bourbon is made by Heaven Hill Distillers, the only remaining private and family-owned distillery in Kentucky, headquartered in Bardstown. In 1996, Heaven Hill's production plant was almost completely destroyed by fire. The company survived and while fermenting, mashing, and distilling now occurs at the new Louisville distillery, aging, bottling, and shipping still occur in Bardstown.
 
Elijah Craig Bourbon is named after a Baptist preacher in Virginia. He has sometimes been credited with the invention of Bourbon Whiskey. The story says he kept a warehouse where he stored barrels and one day experienced a devastating fire. He used the charred casks regardless and found they imparted a lovely character.
 
SmartAss & Trivia:
All of the master distillers at Heaven Hill since its founding have been members of the Beam family. You know Jim Beam, yeah, that Jim, Beam Jim.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
