WASHINGTON, June 11, 2013 – Finally a Celebration I can enjoy - National Bourbon Day! June 14, 1789 is said to be the day that Rev. Elijah Craig first distilled whiskey from corn in Kentucky, storing his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.

Hence, June 14 is now celebrated as National Bourbon Day.

Elijah Craig’s name lives on in the form of a premium bourbon brand produced by Heaven Hill Distillery in Bardstown, KY.

In honor of Craig’s significant contributions to bourbon history, Jack Rose has created two flights of Heaven Hill- distilled bourbons - one featuring the award-winning Elijah Craig and one featuring Evan Williams single barrel vintages from the 90s. These bourbons are extremely rare, with no other place in the region able to offer all four in a flight.

There’s no better place to celebrate a day devoted to bourbon than the place with the largest whisky collection in the Western hemisphere. One of the country’s most esteemed bourbon destinations, Jack Rose Dining Saloon is celebrating National Bourbon Day on Friday, June 14 by offering can’t-get-anywhere-else flights of bourbon in its private basement bar.

Jack Rose will offer two different flights, one for each type of bourbon lover: an approachable flight of Evan Williams at $19 and a 55 flight for the serious bourbon connoisseur featuring small-batch, cask strength and single barrel bottlings from Elijah Craig. Each flight features 1 oz. pours of four bourbons.
