Elijah Craig Barrel Proof 750 ML Hard to Find Limited Edition!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., the nation’s largest family-owned and operated independent spirits producer and the world’s second-largest holder of aging Bourbon, today announced the March release of a special bottling of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

The limited edition release, which will be allocated to markets nationwide that currently offer Elijah Craig, takes advantage of both the surging popularity of high end Bourbons and American Whiskeys, and the trend toward high proof or barrel strength bottlings.

It also leverages the critical acclaim for Elijah Craig Bourbon and the high regard with which critics and aficionados hold the brand, which is a past winner of Whisky Magazine’s “Best of the Best” Bourbon, Whisky Advocate’s “Best Buy Whiskey of the Year”, Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and “Best Bourbon Aged 10-12 Years” from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.  

The new Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Small Batch Release will begin shipping in mid-March to retailers and fine restaurants and bars in nearly every market nationwide, though quantities are limited and strictly allocated. In addition, the release will forgo traditional chill-filtering, meaning all the natural esters and taste components from the barrel are preserved, giving the Bourbon a particularly rich flavor and mouthfeel.

The new release will be offered in the traditional distinctive Elijah Craig flask-style 750ml bottle, with the familiar oversize cork stopper and Elijah Craig signature blown into the front of the glass.  Available in a three bottle case, the new release will carry a dark brown version of the cartouche-style Elijah Craig label, with “Barrel Proof” highlighted in red and hand written proof/alcohol by volume information, which will vary from one dump to the next

“With the current unprecedented popularity of American Whiskeys in general, and high end Bourbon releases in particular, we feel that this release of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is poised for great critical acclaim and sales success,” noted Heaven Hill Senior Brand Manager Susan Wahl.  

“It hits all the right sweet spots for today’s ultra-premium Bourbon consumer—barrel proof, 12 years of aging in open rick warehouses, non-chill filtered, and very small dumps of barrels.
Founded in 1934, Bardstown, KY-based Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc
