The whiskey ended up being made by many distilleries over time and the brand name morphed into "Old Log Cabin". To this day the Cabin shaped bottles and dozens of knock-offs command some of the highest prices in collectible Americana glass.">
Copper & King's American Brandy aged in a Woodford Reserve barrel and bottled at cask strength. Cask strength brandy is nearly unheard of, and this brandy knocked our socks off. Blind tasted, you would be hard pressed to discren the difference between this and a delicious bottle of whiskey. A MUST TRY!!!

64% Corn, 31.5% Rye, an 4.5% Malted Barley aged in new oak delivers a unique, sweet flavor profile that is a great sipper and a step up for that crown fanatic. Currently, this whisky is only available through a barrel program and every barrel is unique, so you won't find this splashed all over town.">

After the two year period was complete we blended most of the whiskey into our inventory but saved two barrels as "Reserve stock." We presented this unique opportunity to Ace Spirits who selected one of the two barrels.
This Hybrid barrel contains American oak, French Oak, and Eastern European Oak from Slovakia. All were charred and toasted at medium (#3) levels.
Our experience from tasting the different barrels was that the American Oak, our standard, had the highest vanillin development resulting in a more typical American sweet profile, The French and Eastern Euro Oaks were significantly drier and much higher in tannin levels. And the Hybrid did the best job of introducing more tannin, but balancing with the vanillin profile. Way higher oak flavors, but not to the point of eliminating the vanilla content compared to American Oak.
This particular barrel Hybrid 1, was one of two filled on 8/9/11. The barrel was dumped and bottled just prior to shipping to Ace Spirits in May 2015."">

Coming from the great master distiller Parker Beam. The Elijah Craig 12 year old Bourbon has to be one of the best 12 year old Bourbons on the market! Great balance of sweetness and spice. Also at 94 proof it have just the right amount of kick!">
The brand carries the name of the Rev. Elijah Craig, the man who discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.
