Fans of Bulleit Bourbon who like a stronger whiskey are in luck — Bulleit is releasing a barrel proof version of their whiskey, at least to shops in Kentucky.
Bulleit Bourbon is one of Diageo’s fastest growing and most popular products. It makes sense that the company would release a barrel proof bourbon, as plenty of bartenders and consumers are turning towards higher strength spirits, which stand up better to ingredients in a cocktail.
For now, the barrel proof version of Bulleit is only available in Kentucky, at a price point of $49.99 for a 750 milliliter bottle. It’s possible we’ll be seeing wider distribution soon, especially after Diageo finishes production of its $115 million Bulleit distillery. The spirits are currently distilled at Four Roses Distillery. Likewise, we might be seeing a barrel proof Bulleit Rye as well, which is most likely dependent on sales of the barrel proof bourbon.
