Elijah Craig 18 Years Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Only a handful of the millions of barrels of Bourbon aging in Kentucky have been allowed to mature this long. A true super-premium Bourbon, Elijah Craig Single Barrel is well positioned to take advantage of the popularity of “Specialty Bourbons”. The brand carries the name of Rev. Elijah Craig, the man who discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.
Elijah Craig 18-Year-Old Single Barrel is a critically acclaimed Bourbon, having captured the 2010 “Best Bourbon” and “Double Gold Medal” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, “Gold Medal” at the WSWA Spirits Tasting Competition, and was named in the “Top 50 Spirits of 2010” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
The packaging reflects the hand-crafted care that goes into the making of the Bourbon. The elegant oval decanter-style bottle features a cork stopper covered in marble-look closure, an impression of the initials “EC” in a pewter-colored seal and an intricate stylized corn filigree.
