This latest Bulleit release which is said to deliver notes of sweet vanilla, toasted oak, red fruit, pear, oaky caramel and cocoa, will join the brands other permanent bottlings, which includes its Bourbon, Rye and 10 Year Old Bourbon expressions.
Bulleit has a long-standing history of pioneering
sustainability and creativity within its portfolio, reducing its carbon
footprint, and investing in restoring the natural resources that go into its
production and packaging. This ongoing commitment is brought to life through
the design of its Bulleit American Single Malt bottle.
Staying true to its iconic, award-winning style, Bulleit
American Single Malt showcases a sustainably minded evolution of Bulleit's
trademark bottle with a striking and unique green hue, crafted with
post-consumer recycled glass.
Bulleit's dedication to sustainability began In 2017 when it
opened a state-of-the-art distillery in Shelbyville, Kentuckyy. It was designed
with a focus on sustainable practices, including natural habitat protection,
water conservation, and local ingredient sourcing.
After forging a partnership in 2020 with the nonprofit
American Forests, Bulleit has committed to planting and restoring 2.5 million
white oak trees by 2026. These trees will help replenish the natural white oak
resource that is necessary for the creation of whiskey barrels, and will also
help combat the effects of climate change by sequestering carbon, purifying
air, and conserving water.
Commenting on the news, Jesse Damashek, Senior Vice
President of Whiskies & Liqueurs at Diageo, said: "Bulleit American
Single Malt brings Bulleit's restless innovation and passion for sustainability
into this exciting new category that is set to make waves in the whiskey
industry for years to come. With a 100% malted barley mash bill, and a striking
green bottle created from post consumer recycled glass, this exceptional
whiskey covers a lot of new ground for the brand. I believe we've succeeded in
crafting a distinctive American Single Malt that whiskey lovers across the
country will savour and enjoy."
Bulleit American Single Malt, is now available from
specialist retailers in the US, for a RRP of $59.99.
