About Bulleit 12 Year Old Straight American Rye Whiskey
This Bulleit Rye Whiskey is crafted from a mash of 95% rye grains and 5% malted barley. Much like the bourbon, the grains are fermented with a unique strain of family yeast and distilled through a copper still. Following distillation, the rye is aged for 12 years. Expect pear-like fruit notes, dry, buttery oakiness, and faintly spiced notes followed by a balance of smoothness and spice.

After inheriting the family recipe in the late 1980s, Tom Bulleit set out to make his own version of the Bulleit Bourbon. "We have a distilling tradition in the family," says Bulleit. "It seems kind of odd that one would have a family recipe for bourbon, but in our part of Kentucky everyone has one."
Today they produce a range of bourbon and rye whiskey that have received numerous awards over the years, and have become the spirit of choice for countless cocktail drinkers around the world. Recently, they've expanded into ready-to-drink cocktails with the Bulleit Crafted Cocktails range that launched with the Bulleit Old Fashioned and the Bulleit Manhattan Cocktail.
