Bulleit Rye arrives in Australia

Rye1Diageo Australia welcomes the arrival of Bulleit Rye, a straight small batch American rye whiskey inspired by a 150-year-old recipe.

Crafted from a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, Bulleit Rye has the highest rye content of any American whiskey available on the Australian market, making it sought after by bartenders worldwide.

Bulleit Rye fully matures in new white American oak barrels for between five and seven years, giving it a light, sweet flavour. Amber in appearance, it displays appealing biscuit aromas with hints of spice, with white raisins and dried apricots on the nose and smooth, dry notes of maple and oak on the palate.
