Elijah Craig Father's Day Gift Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Father’s Day Gift

Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon

Elijah Craig Small Batch is the signature Bourbon bearing the name of Reverend Elijah Craig, who founded his distillery in 1789 in present day Georgetown, Kentucky. He is credited with being the first distiller to age his whiskey in charred oak barrels, earning his place in history as the Father of Bourbon. It’s made exclusively from a blend of 200 or less 8 to 12-year-old barrels, aged in open air rickhouses. It is this extra ageing and expertise in barrel selection that give Elijah Craig its robust body and rich flavour and owes its distinctive warm spice & subtle smoke flavour to Level 3 charred oak barrels.

The Master Distillers at Elijah Craig use malted barley, rye and local corn to produce this burnished copper coloured Bourbon, with a delightfully complex aroma, notes of vanilla bean, sweet fruit and fresh mint. The taste is smooth and warm, woody with accents of smoke and nutmeg and a long, sweet and slightly toasty finish.


Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon RRP: from £42 for 70cl. ABV: 47%. Available from:  Tesco
