4 Delicious Bulleit Cocktails Perfect Anytime of Year

After a limited release last April in just Kentucky, Bulleit’s new Barrel Strength bourbon is starting to roll out in major cities like San Francisco and New York. To celebrate, the company held a press event a few weeks ago with founder Tom Bulleit, who shared not only a taste of the 125-proof bourbon with guests, but also a few cocktails where Barrel Strength really shines (and a few to make with traditional Bulleit and Bulleit Rye if Barrel Strength isn’t available where you are just yet).

We were on hand for the event, and will have our interview with Tom up soon; however, for the time being we thought we’d share a look at some of the amazing cocktails created by the bartenders at Tradition in San Francisco that were on hand for the evening, as well as recipes for how to make them yourself at home. Trust us, you want to make these at home.
