Elijah Craig Bourbon for Mother’s Day

Pop into Waitrose or Tesco to buy your mother figure the ultimate Bourbon gift.

Elijah Craig Small Batch is made exclusively from a blend of 200 or less 8 to 12-year-old barrels, aged in open air rickhouses. It is this extra aging and expertise in barrel selection that give Elijah Craig its robust body and rich flavour and owes its distinctive warm spice and subtle smoke flavour to Level 3 charred oak barrels.
The Master Distillers at Elijah Craig use malted barley, rye and local corn to produce this burnished copper coloured Bourbon, with a delightfully complex aroma, notes of vanilla bean, sweet fruit and fresh mint. The taste is smooth and warm, woody with accents of smoke and nutmeg and a long, sweet and slightly toasty finish.

He is credited with being the first distiller to age his whiskeys in charred oak barrels. The clear, unaged corn spirit transformed into a bold amber liquid with a distinctively smooth flavour that makes Bourbon what it is today.
