With an undeterred passion for whiskey that spanned decades, Tom Bulleit, founder of Bulleit Distilling Co., first started the brand known for its iconic frontier-inspired bottle more than 25 years ago when he resurrected a 150-year-old bourbon recipe that had been passed from his great-great grandfather Augustus Bulleit.
“It’s a dream come true to see that my passion for distilling and my family’s whiskey-making legacy, which spans back to a time in America when opportunities were endless, is available in Guam,” said Bulleit. “Our continued growth is much in part to those who have fallen in love with our brand and recommended it to their friends, family, and colleagues. We look forward to a new batch of consumers responsibly enjoying our products.”
“Island Wines & Spirits is known to bring premium spirits to Guam, and we are proud to offer this extraordinary brand to all our bourbon enthusiasts and collectors,” added IWS Sales Manager, Jessica Leon Guerrero.
Bulleit Bourbon is one of the fastest-growing small batch bourbons in the world, and its rye offering holds the largest share of the ever-growing rye whiskey category. Perhaps no other range of products has captured the palates of whiskey enthusiasts and the imagination of mixologists quite like Bulleit® Bourbon and Bulleit Rye.
Much of the praise, in addition to its bottle, is attributed to the portfolio’s unique recipes that continue to receive accolades from the most prestigious spirits competitions. Bulleit Bourbon has been announced as the bestselling and most trending American Whiskey brand, as voted by the world’s 50 best bars in 2016.
As one of the most high rye content bourbons available in the market, Bulleit Bourbon offers a distinctively spicy, dry, and clean taste, full of hints of vanilla, spice and pepper, which is second to none and the perfect staple to crafting cocktails. Aged in charred American white oak barrels for four to six years, all of Bulleit’s russet coloring and some of its flavor originate from time spent in the barrels and will be offered at 90 proof (45% ABV).
Bulleit Rye was a natural way to extend the Bulleit brand. Bulleit Bourbon is one of the highest percentages of rye grain bourbons on the market, and Bulleit Rye is now one of the highest percentage American rye whiskeys available in the U.S. Bulleit Rye is a straight rye whiskey that consists of a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. The 90-proof rye whiskey has a topaz and medium amber appearance, along with a smoothness that is bolstered by sweet tones of maple and oak.
