Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey

Kentucky Bourbon & Rye

Made using an unusually high proportion of rye for a bourbon, Bulleit was founded in 1987 by Tom Bulleit as he revived a bourbon recipe invented by his great-great grandfather, Augustus, around 1830. What makes the bourbon special is a standard maturation of six years, with an even rarer 10-year-old available.

About Bulleit Bourbon

Bulleit is distilled, aged and bottled in the traditional home of bourbon – Kentucky USA. High rye content gives it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. Kentucky limestone-filtered water provides a foundation for the expression’s character, while charred American oak barrels add a complex finish.

 

Brand image
One fateful day, while transporting his barrels of bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans, Augustus Bulleit vanished. What happened is still unknown.
Brand image
The crooked label is a deliberate and is a nod to a practice in Augustus' days in which a bigger font can be used at an angle to see the name clearer from across the bar.
Brand image
2 million gallons of bourbon are produced by the distillery every year.

History

In 1987, Thomas E. Bulleit, Jr. left his successful law practice and founded Bulleit bourbon, fulfilling a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe. Until 2017 there was no Bulleit Distillery. Tom commissioned his whiskey from other distilleries – after 1997 (when the brand was bought by the giant Canadian distiller, Seagram) from Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg. A state-of-the-art Bulleit distillery was opened to visitors in 2019, offering tours and cocktail classes.
