Elijah Craig: Grain Turned To Gold

All three of these bourbons are from the pre-fire Heaven Hill days. In 1996 Heaven Hill lost 90,000 barrels and its stills to a massive fire. These bottles were distilled before the fire and survived for bottling. They’d be an excellent addition for any collector as they are considered “dusties” in the collector world; however, they’d be an even better part of an evening enjoyed with friends. The Elijah Craig 18 Year Old Bourbon is part of an annual release by Heaven Hill Distillery. Its tasting notes include caramel, vanilla, and oak. The Elijah Craig 21 Year Old Bourbon has an aroma of buttered bread, oak, and caramel. This limited edition, ultra-aged Single Barrel is full-bodied, with notes of cinnamon, crème brulée, roasted corn, candied walnuts, and buttered popcorn that lead to a tangy finish accented by touches of caramel, vanilla, and orange. The Eljiah Craig 23 Year Old Bourbon is part of an annual release by Heaven Hill Distillery. Its tasting notes include oak, caramel, and vanilla. Donated by Albert Blackmon

Hot Air Balloon Ride for 2

Soar over the Western Piedmont countryside outside Statesville. On a clear day you can see up to 50 miles – see the Brushy Mountains, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Pilot Mountain, and hear the creek gurgling beneath the branches! You might choose a sunrise flight at dawn or a sunset flight, about two hours before the sun goes down – the best times of day for ballooning, when the winds are usually calm. For about an hour or so, you’ll fly a distance of about 2 to 10 miles, depending on wind speed and wind direction. Altitude will vary from crop level and treetop height to several thousand feet. How high would you like to fly? Donated byBig oh! Balloons, Cool Springs Center
