We are pleased to announce the release of our Elijah Craig Single Barrel Bourbon. Selected on our Fall 2018 Bourbon Buying Trip, the Elijah Craig Bourbon is our last to be released from the five single barrels brought back to Minnesota. Our selected barrel, affectionately named "4 Hour Tour" is aged 11 years, 9 months and 22 days. Below is an excerpt from our trip notes:
Day 2 of our trip would take us to Bardstown, Kentucky, the "Bourbon Capital of the World" and home of Heaven Hill. We were there for a VIP tour and a barrel selection appointment to pick our own barrel of Elijah Craig Bourbon. Herb, our host, met us at the visitors center and started our [4 hour] tour with the rich history and lore of Heaven Hill Distillery. They really pulled out all the stops on this tour, did you know there is a huge room full of all the different bottle labels? Fittingly, it's called The Label Room.
We saw barrels being filled, bottles being filled, and warehouses stocked full of aging bourbon. We finally found ourselves in historic Warehouse Y to sample and pick our barrel of Elijah Craig. This choice wasn't too difficult, we found another great barrel thanks to our friends at Heaven Hill.
