As Bulleit enthusiasts know, rye has always been our cornerstone.
In 1987, Thomas E. Bulleit, Jr., fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company. Inspired by his great-great-grandfather Augustus Bulleit, who made a high-rye whiskey between 1830-1860, Tom left a successful law practice and risked everything to experience life on the frontier.
The distinct high rye content of Bulleit Bourbon provides a bolder, spicier character that is noticeably drier and less sweet than most other bourbons.
The Bulleit Bourbon high rye mash bill has been passed down through five generations.
The Bulleit Bourbon bottle and presentation represents the independence and spirit of the American frontier.
