This bottle was created in partnership with The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the founding of the first Elks' Lodge. The Elk's Lodge have over 780,000 members who are devouted to serving their local communities, and building civic pride. In celebration of the Elk's Lodges' 150 years of community service, each bottle comes with a decorative Elks USA custom stopper.
The Old Elk recipe includes three quality ingredients malted barley, rye, and corn. Old Elk Bourbon uses four times more malted barley than conventional recipes and a slow cut proofing process. We invested in a higher malted barley recipe to deliver a unique flavor profile that has a spice similar to a rye, but smooth characteristics from the malted barley. We were very intentional to use the minimal amount of corn, to allow for larger quantities of malted barley. The high malted barley content adds almond notes and a sweet, smooth character, the rye adds a bit of spice, and the corn provides a robust bourbon foundation. Our slow cut proofing enhances the bourbon's flavors through a patient process where full barrel proof bourbon is cut, then left to rest, and repeated. While traditional proofing takes 24-48 hours, our slow cutting technique, developed over several test periods, takes significantly longer. This intentional time period allows the flavors to marry between stages, until the exact character is achieved, creating an overall smoother bourbon.

Great service getting me the case I ordered. Had a chance to sample with my Elk brothers and sister who love Bourbon...”Smooth” and “Sweet”. A lot of happy faces. Thank you Old Elk! Good stuff!!!
The crew at the Convention were just awesome. We had the opportunity to sample this Bourbon. Now I am not a Bourbon drinker but must admit that after the first sip it was smooth sailing. We ordered 5 and can't wait till they arrive.
Wonderfull at Natl's! Better than anything in the hospitality rooms!
After having an opportunity to see and taste this bottle at our 150th anniversary in San Antonio, I can honestly say I've been blown away!! Not only is the packaging one of the coolest, most American looking bottles, but the bourbon is absolutely mind blowing. It's incredibly smooth with an extra malty sweetness, and has just the right amount of spice to make for a perfectly balanced bourbon. I'm extremely happy to have found my new favorite whiskey!
I met the Old Elk team while attending our annual convention and was really impressed with this project. This is a really cool high malt mash bill and was really easy to drink. Excited for my bottles
I tried this Bourbon and was really impressed. Very smooth and great for sipping!
Great concept for the Elks Club. I have to pre-order a couple now.
