The distillery recently announced a limited supply of the Rev. Elijah Craig’s eponymous 21-year-old Single Barrel Bourbon will be showing up in stores—probably by next month. Craig Beam explains that several hundred barrels that have been aging quietly in middle to high storage in some of the company’s best warehouses have been designated for the next Elijah Craig bottling. Susan Wahl, Brand Manager of Heaven Hill's Whiskey Portfolio, says that this rare bottling will provide consumers with a unique tasting experience. "It will be a journey of discovery," she said, "enabling Bourbon drinkers to discover and enjoy the complexities of a more aged, rarer edition of a genuinely fine Bourbon."
A whiskey for the true Bourbon connoisseur, the Elijah Craig 21-Year-Old is expected to retail for approximately $140 for the 750ml size. And, as in the case of the 20-year-old version, distribution will be limited.
