They say Elijah kind of invented Bourbon. Well he didn’t. Great man though!
 
This Kentucky Bourbon is made by Heaven Hill Distillers, the only remaining private and family-owned distillery in Kentucky, headquartered in Bardstown. In 1996, Heaven Hill's production plant was almost completely destroyed by fire. The company survived and while fermenting, mashing, and distilling now occurs at the new Louisville distillery, aging, bottling, and shipping still occur in Bardstown.
 
Elijah Craig Bourbon is named after a Baptist preacher in Virginia. He has sometimes been credited with the invention of Bourbon Whiskey. The story says he kept a warehouse where he stored barrels and one day experienced a devastating fire. He used the charred casks regardless and found they imparted a lovely character.
 
SmartAss & Trivia:
All of the master distillers at Heaven Hill since its founding have been members of the Beam family. You know Jim Beam, yeah, that Jim, Beam Jim.
