Collection Elijah Craig - Bourbon Whiskey

The bourbon brand is named for the Reverend Elijah Craig, a Baptist minister, educator, and entrepreneur in Fayette County, Virginia, which became Scott County, Kentucky after the founding of Kentucky in 1792.

Around 1789 Craig established a distillery there. The Heaven Hill company dubiously credits him with inventing "real Kentucky bourbon" by enhancing the locally made distillate from an unaged corn spirit through cask aging in charred oak casks, "a process that gives bourbon its reddish color and unique flavor." flavor".

With this claim, the company advertises Heaven Hill and calls Elijah Craig "The Father of Bourbon" in its product advertising. Elijah Craig is best known for its association with this bourbon brand.
