Elijah Craig

Elijah Craig is now one of the labels of Heaven Hill Distilleries, named after the Reverend Elijah Craig, a Baptist preacher and active character in 1800s Kentucky, who was also a pioneer in the world of Bourbon, accredited with first using charred American oak barrels to create that distinctive flavour. There are a number of legends as to how Elijah started using charred barrels, one involving an accidental fire at the mill, but however he did it, the legacy continues today. Heaven Hill Distillery preserves the Bourbon making traditions developed by Elijah Craig: local corn and grains are milled and mixed with limestone-rich Kentucky spring water, then fermented and distilled. After years of aging in charred oak, their Master Distillers select the most complex barrels to go into bottles.
