Elijah Craig was a Virginia-born Baptist reverend who preached the word of the bible on the frontier but practiced the art and science of farm distilling, one of many at the time who tried to find further fortune to spin from crops. While it’s not clear if he actually invented the process, Craig is given credit for popularizing the signature American bourbon practice of aging the spirit in charred oak barrels, a step that is now included in the federal laws that govern the making of the popular whiskey.
The high corn percentage and the likely addition of wheat to the mash bill of Elijah Craig add a plush, soft texture to the Elijah Craig small batch that is nearly confectionary, in the best possible way. Its fruity, perfumed nose is alluring and its caramel and vanilla notes become even more pronounced with just a few drops of water. It’s such an easy sipper. Elijah Craig is credited as the ‘Father of Bourbon.’ Each batch carries a signature warm spice and subtle smoke flavor. ‘Best Small Batch Bourbon’ winner San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
