Bulleit Bourbon is a staple behind most bars in the US due to it's spicy, rye influenced notes. Augustus Bulleit was a barkeep that eperimented with bourbons in the 1830's until finding that special Bulleit recipe. Unfortunately, old Augustus vanished without a trace while trasporting some of his hooch and for more than 100 years, the recipe was all but lost. But in 1987 Augustus' great-great-grandson, Tom Bulleit restored the recipe and started making the famous family bourbon that had been lost for so long.
The flagship bourbon is distilled with roughly 28% rye and aged for approximately six years before being bottled at a respectable 90 proof. All of the whiskies produced under the Bulleit label are small batch whiskies.
