About Bulleit Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
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 four Bourbons and one Rye Whiskey that have received numerous awards, and have become the Spirits of choice for cocktail drinkers around the world.
Bulleit Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from pure Kentucky limestone-filtered water and locally sourced ingredients. It 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, new American white oak casks.
Bulleit Bourbon has a caramel color, along with an aroma of charred oak, rich caramel and warm spices. The notes of oak, allspice and cinnamon give way to hints of creamy vanilla and rye bread on the palate, and lead to a long, lingering finish.
Bulleit Bourbon has received "Excellent, Highly Recommended" at the 2017 Ultimate Spirits Challenge, a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast
, and Forbes Magazine
called it "one of the best bourbons.". It has won several awards, including the coveted Double Gold medal at the 2016 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
"There's a difference between aging and maturity, and we'll never bottle whiskey until it's ready to reach the customer," says Bulleit.
