Bulleit Rye Whiskey
High rye content has always been the signature of Tom Bulleit’s distinctive bourbon. It was only a matter of time before he created a rye whiskey.
Bulleit Rye is an award-winning, small-batch, straight rye whiskey with a character of unparalleled spice and complexity. The mash has a rye content of 95%. 5% is malted barley. Released in 2011, it continues to enjoy recognition as one of the highest quality ryes available.
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.
