Some years ago, I fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company. Inspired by my great-great-grandfather Augustus Bulleit, who made his signature high-rye whiskey in the mid-1800s, I quit my job and risked everything to experience life on the frontier. I have never looked back.
To this day, Bulleit Bourbon is distilled and aged in the Bulleit family tradition. High rye content gives it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. Kentucky limestone-filtered water provides a foundation for the bourbon's character, while charred American oak barrels lend a smoky backbone. Our aging philosophy is simple: we wait until our bourbon is ready.
