    Product Description

    Elijah Craig is credited as the first distiller to age his whiskey in charred oak barrels, earning his place in history as the Father of Bourbon. The charred barrel transformed the clear liquid inside into an intense amber whiskey made rich with the flavors of the wood, which all now recognize as Bourbon.

    Elijah Craig Straight Rye is the first extra-aged Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey to join Elijah Craig's award-winning lineup. While the distillation process for Elijah Craig Straight Rye is similar to Elijah Craig's Small Batch Bourbon, the difference lies in the mash bill, which contains 51% rye grain instead of corn, the legal requirement for this style of American Whiskey. Featuring a mash bill that balances the spiciness of rye grains with the sweetness of corn, this Straight Rye celebrates Elijah Craig's bold and innovative spirit. Its unique combination of grains and steadfast attention to detail throughout the aging and selection process gives Elijah Craig Rye the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness.

    Elijah Craig Straight Rye has a long and lingering finish and boasts flavors of rich baking spices, and honey backed up with smooth oak influence. Elijah Craig Straight Rye is a medium chestnut color with the aroma of dark chocolate, spices, and a hint of smoke. Double Gold award winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Platinum, Best of Class winner at SIP Awards International Spirits Competition.
