All about making whisky
Elijah Craig is part of a small series of American whiskies whose brands, created by the Heaven Hill company, pay tribute to the historic pioneers of bourbon. Elijah Craig was an American reverend with Scottish origins who was often claimed to have been the inventor of bourbon and began producing whisky as early as 1795. The range consists of two main products: Elijah Craig 12 Year Old Small Batch (a blend of at least 100 casks) and, since 1995, Elijah Craig 18 Year Old Single Barrel - both of which are much loved by connoisseurs and often awarded prizes at competitions. The range also includes, on very rare occasions, one-off bottlings, such as the 20 year old single barrel released in 2011.
