A Top USA Bourbon Brand Just Unveiled Their Very-First Rye Whiskey

Oct 18, 2019

Category: Vices

One of the many lauded Heaven Hill Distillery brands, Elijah Craig is an award-winning Kentucky bourbon maker. However, though they’ve been around since 1986, they haven’t really ventured outside of their comfort zone — at least in regards to spirit styles. That’s all about to change, however, with the release of the brand’s first-ever rye whiskey.

Called simply Elijah Craig Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, this traditional spirit has a mash comprised of 51% rye, 35% corn and 14% malted barley. And while it doesn’t have an age statement, the brand has claimed that it has been aged longer than its counterparts — resulting in a profile heavy in both spice and sweetness thanks to the unique combination of rye and corn in the mash. Set to hit the shelves in January of 2020, the price is set at $30 a bottle.

Purchase: $30
