Ninety-five percent of the mash bill for this small batch Kentucky spirit is rye, giving it a character of unparalleled spice and complexity. Aged 4 to 7 years in heavily charred American oak casks, it is russet in color, with rich oaky aromas, a smooth vanilla-tinged palate and crisp and clean finish. It earned a Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The entry on Bulleit is a perfect union of sweet and rye spice. It’s an exceptional product with a very well crafted taste experience that serves as a thesis on why people love a good rye whiskey."

Product Details

On the heels of the high-rye Bourbons produced by the Kentucky distillery, this small-batch whiskey has a mash ball of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. Aged four to seven years in heavily charred American oak casks and bottled at 90 proof, it has a character of unparalleled spice and complexity. Russet-hued in the glass, it has rich oaky aromas and a smooth flavor, with hints of vanilla, honey and spice; it finishes crisp and clean, with long-lingering flavors. It earned a score of 95 points in 2014 at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, which named it the best rye whiskey in the world.

About the Producer

The first batch of Bulleit Bourbon was produced in Kentucky around 1830 by Augustus Bulleit, who continued to produce whiskey during the nineteenth century, until the brand was discontinued in 1860. In 1987, Tom Bulletit, the great-great-grandson of the original creator, re-launched the brand and oversaw the distillation of the modern-day Bulleit Bourbon. Today, Bulleit is owned by Diageo and is produced at the Kirin Brewing Company Four Roses distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
