A bold and lightly spicy bourbon
Bulleit Bourbon is inspired by the whiskey pioneered by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only ingredients of the very highest quality are used. The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn, and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone filtered water.
Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that's distinctively clean and smooth. It is medium amber in colour, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. Mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. Followed by a long, dry, and satiny finish with a light toffee flavour.
Bulleit Bourbon is delicious in cocktails, the spicy taste makes the perfect Old Fashioned, Kentucky Mule & Mint Julip. It is also a favourite in hot serves such as a Hot Toddy or Hot Chocolate.

A bit of history
A tavern keeper in 1830s Louisville, Kentucky, Augustus Bulleit had a single goal: the creation of a bourbon unique in flavour. After experimenting with countless varieties, he finally created a bourbon with the character he had long sought after. One day, while transporting his barrels of bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans, Augustus Bulleit vanished. What happened is still unknown, and his creation disappeared for a while. In 1987, Thomas E. Bulleit Jr. fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving the old family bourbon recipe, by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company.
Bulleit Bourbon gets its bold, spicy character and smooth, clean finish from its high rye content. Water from the nearby Kentucky hills, filtered over limestone, provides the base for the bourbon's character and finally charred American oak barrels gives it a smoky backbone."
