The history of bourbon is closely linked to that of Reverend Elijah Craig, a true Kentucky legend of the 1880s. As a Baptist preacher, educator, road builder and entrepreneur, Elijah Craig was a man of many talents. However, it was as a distiller that he made his mark on bourbon history.
Elijah Craig is widely recognised as the first distiller to come up with the idea of aging his whiskey in burnt oak barrels. The reasons behind this discovery are shrouded in legend. One version is that an accidental fire in Elijah's mill burnt the wooden casks, changing the whiskey in them. Another version is that Elijah was storing his wares in old sugar casks and one day was surprised to find that the burning of the casks improved the taste of the whiskey.
Whatever the version, Elijah Craig played a crucial role in the evolution of bourbon by introducing this innovative method of aging. Today, his name is synonymous with quality and authenticity in the bourbon world. Each sip of Elijah Craig Bourbon pays tribute to the legacy and innovation of this pioneer, providing a unique and memorable taste experience.
