Bulleit Bourbon Blenders' Select No. 001
Bourbon /50% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
Rooted in tradition but leaving its own legacy, Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey Blenders' Select offers a unique experience that's distinctly Bulleit in character. This limited, small batch bottling was painstakingly crafted by Bulleit blender Eboni Major. With access to more than 100 distinct liquids, she hand-selected and mingled three of our ten flagship distillates, each aged between six and eight years, to showcase the best of Bulleit. Notes of vanilla bean, honey, dried fruit and toasted oak lead to a smooth, balanced finish with a lingering of sweet cream and fruit wine decadence. Perfect on its own, Blenders' Select is best served neat or on the rocks. Includes one 100 proof 750 mL bottle of Bourbon Whiskey Blenders' Select. Bulleit Bourbon is still distilled and aged in the Bulleit family tradition. Blenders' Select was born from Eboni Major's idea that a selection of distillates used in Bulleit could successfully provide the pillar and focal point of their own blend. This Women's History Month, we're raising a glass to Eboni and craftswomen everywhere in celebration of their innovation and dedication to quality. Please drink responsibly.Nose: Notes of vanilla bean, honey, dried fruit and toasted oak.

Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
