Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey
Bulleit Bourbon is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey whose high-rye content and iconic frontier inspired bottle is a favourite among bartenders and mixologists across the world. When Tom Bulleit set out to make a bourbon unlike any other, he was inspired by a recipe created by his great-great grandfather Augustus Bulleit more than 175 years ago. Crafted using pure limestone-filtered water and charred American oak barrels for all of the colour and some of the flavour, Bulleit is especially high in rye content, giving it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish.
The modern version of Bulleit Bourbon was created by Tom Bulleit in 1987. Reviving Bulleit Bourbon in the late 80s was perfectly timed for the resurgence of American Whiskey, and the Bulleit brand is now widely distributed and very well known. The current recipe is very different from the original, which was technically a rye Whiskey by today’s standards.
