A multi Double-Gold winning classic American Rye Whiskey… extra heavy on the rye.

Tom Bulleit comes from a family steeped in distilling fine Spirits. He set out to make his own mark in 1987 when he launched Bulleit Frontier Whiskey by reviving the old family recipe — Bulleit Bourbon — with a high-rye mash bill and a ton of attitude. Today they are a part of the Diageo portfolio producing a range of four Bourbons and one Rye Whiskey that have become the Spirits of choice for discriminating cocktail drinkers around the world.

Bulleit Straight Rye Mash Whiskey is a High-Rye with a mash bill that maximizes the classic Rye flavor profile and enzyme extraction. They follow the family tradition of using a special, proprietary strain of yeast to keep with the unique character of their products. Further, this Spirit is aged five to six years in new casks where the staves have been toasted to a #4 char and the head toasted to a #2 char. And with the 45% ABV, you will easily taste the difference. — which is why it took home a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, among other top honors.

Smartass Corner:
It’s very common for Whiskies to use a bit of malted barley in the mash bill — even in low concentrations. That’s because barley jump-starts the fermentation process and lets the "planted" yeast strains get ahead of and wild yeasts that might be hanging around.

George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
