After inheriting the family recipe in the late 1980s, Tom Bulleit set out to make his own version of the Bulleit Bourbon. “We have a distilling tradition in the family,” says Bulleit. “It seems kind of odd that one would have a family recipe for bourbon, but in our part of Kentucky everyone has one.”
Today they produce a range of bourbon and rye whiskey that have received numerous awards over the years, and have become the spirit of choice for countless cocktail drinkers around the world. Recently, they’ve expanded into ready-to-drink cocktails with the Bulleit Crafted Cocktails range that launched with the Bulleit Old Fashioned and the Bulleit Manhattan Cocktail.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
