The first extra-aged Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey to join Elijah Craig’s award-winning family of Bourbons. A unique combination of spicy rye grains and sweet corn, coupled with a steadfast attention to detail, give Elijah Craig Straight Rye the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness.
THE RYE MASHBILL
While the distillation process for Straight Rye is
similar to our Small Batch Bourbon, the difference
lies in the mashbill. It’s 51% rye grain instead
of corn: the legal requirement for this style
of American Whiskey.

cinnamon to black pepper.”
