Bulleit Straight Rye Mash Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Bulleit Straight Rye Mash Whiskey

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 four Bourbons and one Rye Whiskey that have received numerous awards, and have become the Spirits of choice for cocktail drinkers around the world.Bulleit Straight Rye Mash Whiskey is made from pure Kentucky limestone-filtered water and locally sourced ingredients. Bulleit Rye is crafted from a mash of 95 percent rye grains and 5 percent malted barley. Much like the bourbon, the grains are fermented with a unique strain of family yeast and distilled through a copper still. Following distillation, the rye is aged for five to six years in heavily charred, new American oak casks.The rye has a burnished bronze color, along with rich oaky aromas. The aroma gives way to notes of citrus, vanilla, honey and spicy oak. The finish is clean, spicy and crisp, with a hint of caramel and vanilla. The spicy finish, created by the high rye content, is perfect for classic cocktails, such as Sazerac, The Manhattan and Old Fashioned.Bulleit Rye earned the Double Gold and Gold Medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, a score of 95 points as well as "Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation" from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2014. It achieved Liquid Gold Award and a score of 96 in Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2018."Theres a difference between aging and maturity, and well never bottle whiskey until its ready to reach the customer," says Bulleit.
