Proof66 Notes

Elijah Craig 23yr bourbon is one of the oldest bourbons bottled in the world overcoming the venerable and recently released 20yr expression. The bourbon comes from a single barrel selected by Parker Beam and Craig Beam, master distillers of Heaven Hill.

Heaven Hill Distilleries was founded shortly after prohibition and in the height of the Great Depression with no brands and no ready available stocks of whiskey. Today, they claim an inventory of over 675,000 barrels. The company reports that it is "the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country." While Heaven Hill focuses on bourbon, it produces a wide array of spirits.

Today, Elijah Craig bourbons are produced as part of the Bardstown Bourbon Society. They are named for the reputed "father of bourbon" Reverend Elijah Craig, who is (sometimes) credited with first using charred oak barrels to give bourbon whiskey its distinctive flavor and color.
