In the 1830s, a tavern-keeper in Louisville, Kentucky named Augustus Bulleit began experimenting with different recipes in order to create a unique bourbon. At the time, it was common for bartenders and salon-owners to create their own whiskies — they often added caramel, tobacco or rock candy in order to produce their signature drinks. After countless trials, Bulleit finally settled on a recipe that produced the perfect bourbon.

In the 1860s, Bulleit disappeared while transporting a few of his maturing casks of bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans. Over a century later, Tom Bulleit — Augustus' great-great grandson — inherited the family recipe and began producing 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."

This second batch of Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength is crafted from a mash of corn, rye and malted barley. After the grains are harvested, they are mashed and fermented with a unique strain of family yeast. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled through a copper still before being matured in charred, American oak casks for six to eight years. "Once we're done with the barrels, they're sent over to Johnnie Walker where they'll age the blended scotches," says Bulleit. Proofs range from 118-125.4.
