From the brand

In 1987, Tom Bulleit fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company. Inspired by his great-great grandfather Augustus Bulleit, who made a high-rye whiskey between 1830 and 1860, Tom left a successful law practice and risked everything to experience life on the frontier. Today, Bulleit Bourbon is distilled and aged in small batches. 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. "
