The world of golf and whiskey collide with the introduction of the Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Ryder Cup Edition. This special edition is not just another variant of the Elijah Craig Barrel Proof but stands out as a unique product in its own right. It begins as a fully-matured Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon and undergoes a finishing process in European oak barrels. These barrels, intriguingly, hail from Slovakia and are toasted with a profile inspired by those used in the Lazio wine-growing region of Italy.

The choice of Lazio is not arbitrary. Lazio, which encompasses Rome, is the region where the 2023 Ryder Cup is set to kick off. This whiskey serves as a bridge between the U.S. Team's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – America’s native spirit – and the renowned wine-growing region and host city of the European Team.

Max Stefka, Group Product Director of Elijah Craig Bourbon, expressed excitement about this release, stating, "We are thrilled to raise a glass to the 2023 Ryder Cup with this new limited-edition release of Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel." The unique combination of toasted European Oak and extra-aged Kentucky Bourbon provides a tasting experience worthy of one of the world's most prestigious sporting events.

The story of Elijah Craig is deeply embedded in the annals of bourbon lore. He revolutionised the bourbon-making process by introducing the technique of charring oak barrels, thereby earning the esteemed title of "The Father of Bourbon". Fast forward to the present, and the brand's commitment to excellence remains unwavering. Under the watchful eyes of their Master Distillers, the Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon is meticulously crafted, achieving a harmonious blend of full-bodied richness and multi-layered flavour profiles. Each batch is a reflection of the brand's dedication to quality, offering a signature warmth, intertwined with nuances of spice and a whisper of smokiness. It's a bourbon that deserves a place of pride in the collection of every whiskey aficionado.
